Sattriya dance is a very rare classical dance form of Assam which narrates the love story of Usha and Aniruddh. Can anyone tell me the evolution of this dance and the mythological story behind it?

Yes it is a dance-drama of Assam that was introduced by Mahapurusha Sankaradeva as a powerful medium for propagation of the Vaishnava faith.

This dance form was originally performed in the Sattras and the Namghars, by the male Bhokots as a part of religious rituals and for spreading the philosophy of Vaishnavism and was confined within the four walls of the sattras for several centuries.
