In the ancient days Indian Dance festivals were organised in few temples by the beaurocrats in the departments of culture. Accordingly, dance festivals became a part of temple ceremony. The dance festivals were organised in the temple with a view that dance and temple would come close to each other. The saga of Indian dance festivals continued although the forms changed and even the style altered.

India presents an amazing variety of dances certain dances are religious in nature, while others are performed primarily for the purpose of entertainment or marking a festive occasion. The recognition of this performing art has initiated the exponents and admirers to organise a wide range of dance festivals all over the country. History unveils that the Indian dance festivals were even organised in the long gone days of the Rajas and Maharajas. The beginning of these dance festivals was from the temples of India and gradually they were nurtured in the princely courts.
