Dances of India unveils the panorama of diverse dance forms of India.

The sound of ghungroos in India is not restricted to the performance halls and auditoriums only: it flows out into the streets, fields, and forests, right across the length and breadth of the nation. India’s rich heritage of classical, folk, and tribal dances surpasses those of any other nation.

Dance is an expression of untold happiness, and in India, it is linked to mythology and culture as well. Dances reflect the moods and feelings of he common man in India and are an inseparable component of the Indian milieu. The general festive ethos of the different communities and regions in India change every occasion like sowing of crops, harvest, wedding, victory, festivals, and rituals into a time for celebration and dance. This is the raison d’etre for the existence of a large variety of folk and tribal dances in every region of India.

In schools, Children are given just a broad glimpse of the dances in India. This book attempts to widen their horizon of knowledge about those dances. I am sure it will prove to be a good reference book for their projects and expand their general awareness.
