Poppyy’s dance fever - Rare and disappearing Dance forms of India With States


Hello there! It’s Poppyy here, but this time, I am here with a question, and I would love to have answers from you all. 

As you all know, Poppyy is always in search of new and fascinating things.

So, this time, I have decided to search the rarest and different dance forms of India with states as I wish to learn them. I had done a massive research to find those traditional dance forms of India that are slowly disappearing from the land of India.

A few decades back, most dances of Indian states were performed with immense enthusiasm, and there were numerous dancers who knew to show such traditional Indian arts and dance forms. One of the essential things that have been used in dances of Indian states is the “Ghungroo”. These are beautifully designed ornament that dancers tie on their ankles. The tinkling sound of these is enough to grab the attention of all. The crowd used to gather just by hearing them, and then they do sit and enjoy the wonderful performance of dancers for several hours.

When I decided to take lessons of folk dances of India, I made sure that I had to do detailed research for understanding the rare folk dances of india that were once the source of recreation for all audiences. So now I am sharing my observations that will give you all an insight into the different dance forms of India with states.

Dances of Indian states The Gotipua Dance of Odisha-

This was one of the famous dances of Indian states that originated from the land of Odisha. The term is used to depict the words “single boy”. In this, when boys reach the phase of adolescence they would be dressing up as females and then would dance to offer praise to Lord Jagannath and Krishna. But with time, the dress along with makeup of dancers got modified, and this transition has lead to successful ongoing of the other traditional dance of Odisha, popularly called the Odissi. With its emergence going back to 16th century, this particular form has been kept alive by the young boys of the state. It could be learned from classical dance lessons easily, and then you could tap your feet to the tune during dance lessons. 

The Chhau dance:

This special dance emerged in a famous state of India, centuries back. It is a tribal art of dance that is more about martial arts and fighting. The dance classes for Chhau would be divided into three styles and masks are used by dancers to make it feel more vibrant. The term is the Sanskrit word for chaaya that means shadow. It is a rare mythological dance that has very powerful moves, and various weapons are used including swords and arrows. The dance lessons would make sure to teach you the powerful steps that would help to perform the dance with strength and vigor.  

The Sattriya dance:

More often called as “dashabtar”, this rare dance was found by Srimanta Sankaradeva. The initial form contained the depiction of mythological fables, and this was conveyed in easy going way. The dance was recognized properly in 2000 when it was recognized among the top classical Indian dance. This classical dance was inspired from folk as well as the traditional dance of North east areas, especially Assam.   

The Gaur Maria dance:

The term Guar stands for Bison, and the dance begins with the wild sound of bamboo trumpet or horn. The dance is really enchanting with the mystical formation that the women make while holding the long stick in hands. The sound of drum and horns are followed to move, and women keep re-crossing their male partners throughout the Gaur Maria dance.

It is rarest dance form of India and was founded in Madhya Pradesh. The best thing that is worth noticing is the wild touch that is added to this significant dance that does not stop on the moves but is seen in the costumes as well. 

Phag dance:

Commonly called “Phagun Dance” this is the myriad dance form which is still performed with pomp and fun in many remote areas of our country. If you take dance lessons for this art, then would be happy to have joined this class since there is a lot of fun during such dance class.  The attire would make you smile, and you would love performing it as you will enjoy tapping your feet to the ancient rhythmic tune of the Phag dance.
