Very true Anjana....Khajuraho Dance Festival is a weeklong dance festival. It is held during the months of February and March in Khajuraho. This cultural extravaganza is organized by the Madhya Pradesh Tourism Department that takes place at an open-air auditorium in front of the Chitragupta Temple. Apart from the Chitragupta temples the Khajuraho Dance festival is also organized at the Vishwanatha Temple that is a dedication to Lord Shiva. It is a comparatively new dance festival and was first organized in the year 2002. Although this festival is just few years old this festival has earned a great deal of reputation among locals and foreigners.

Khajuraho Dance Festival is a new dance festival and was first organized in the year 2002. Though this festival is relatively young yet this festival has gained immense importance amidst the Classical dance connoisseurs. The dances that are portrayed here are that of Kathak, Odissi, Kathakali, Bharathanatyam, Kuchipudi and Manipuri.

I visited this festival once....its an awesome sight...some of the best known dance styles such as the intricate footwork of Kathak, highly stylized and sophisticated Bharathanatyam, soft lyrical temple dance of Odissi, the dance dramas of Kuchipudi, Manipuri, the dance of rare and ancient civilization and Kathakali are seen in this festival. Recently, modern Indian dances have also found their place in the Khajuraho Dance festival. Along with the dance performances one can also see a number of craftsmen trading off their indigenous arts and crafts to the visitors.
