Indian folk dances are a fine way to observe and study the rural culture of India. These dances mirror the varied cultures and traditions of our country. I feel our folk dances are simple but very expressive. What`s your take guys?

I agree with you. If one wants to know rural people, one should gain knowledge on folk dances. During my school life, I have performed innumerable times such dances. They not only provided me a view of their costume but also about their dialect.

Very true. I specially like the Bhangra owing to its colourful costume, throbbing rhythm and energetic beats.

I like Bihu dance of Assam. This joyous folk dance is interesting to watch. Both male and female perform this dance by wearing their traditional attires. Melodious Bihu music accompanies the dance.

Another well known folk dance is Chhau. The speciality of this dance is the mask. It is prevalent in Odisha, Bihar and West Bengal. Here is an article about the dance www.indianetzone.com/1/chhau_dance.htm

I like Dandiya of Gujarat. This dance is very popular during Navratri festival. The colorful costumes and sound of the sticks make it a wonderful performance.

Yes, Dandiya is a fantastic dance. It is popular not only in Gujarat but also throughout the country. It is a group dance where both male and female can participate.
