Theses classes are ongoing through July 27th 2016

KALBELIA Dance is a lively dance performed in flowing black skirts who dance and swirl, replicating the movements of a serpent. The upper body cloth is called Angrakhi and a piece of cloth worn on head known as Odhani similarly the lower body cloth is called Lengha.

GHOOMAR Dance gets its name from ‘ghoomna’, the pirouetting which displays the spectacular colors of the flowing ‘ghaghara’, the long skirt of the Rajasthani women. There is an amazing grace as the skirts flair slowly while the women twirl in circles, their faces covered with the help of veils. This dance is primarily performed at weddings as it retells the story of the bride getting adorned, preparing sweets and tells about the Rajput groom she prefers to marry. This dance is usually done in a circle.

CHARI Dance is very famous dance in Rajasthan India. Gathering water in a chari or a pot is a part of daily life of women of Rajasthan. During the Chari dance, colorfully dressed, bejeweled women hold earthenware or brass Chari pots on their heads. Often, the Chari are set on lit Diya (oil lamp) or fire with cotton seeds immersed in oil. Dancers carry a flaming pot on their head without touching it, while performing graceful movements of limbs and deep swirls of knees. To make the dance look more attractive lines of lighted patterns are created as the dancers move quietly around the floor.

GORBANDH dance, is focused on the process of designing decorative string for their camel, their traditional vehicle. The dance emulates the beauty in the faultless labor involved in decorating the camel.

TERA TALI is a seated danced done by the women of the Kamad Tribe of Rajasthan. An interesting part of the Tera Tali dance is the tying of metal cymbals (Manjiras) to different parts of the body, mostly on the legs. On many occasions, women clasp a sword in between their teeth and balance a decorative pot on their head.
