India is vast in variety of ethnic groups, races and cultural groups. India has carried forward its diversity in color and cultural group for centuries.
Each region, district has its particular folk music and dance form, from Kanyakumari in the south to Kashmir in north and from Maharastra in the west to Manipur and Assam in the east.
Every dance form depends on the level of social and cultural development. Accordingly, It is divided into three categories i.e. Tribal, Village-folk Community and Traditional Ritual dances.
The theme of dances are very simple but they are very unique in nature and its execution. Sometimes, they revolve around the daily task of fields in reaping the harvests, of pounding rice, of weaving textiles, of catching birds and insects. At the other side, they celebrate victory in war or success in haunt. And yet in others, It is the abstract movement of an actual ritual performed to propitiate the Gods, or dances which may have a magical impact.
Finally, there are the community dances for all the seasons and festivals when men and women dance for sheer joy to celebrate spring, the rains, autumn and winter. Everyone dance, everyone participate or create. There is no entertainer, only entertainment.
