Introduction

Folk dances evolved from the lives of common people and were performed in unison. They retain significance in rural areas as the expression of the daily work and rituals of village communities.

The Natya Shastra includes group dances of women as a preliminary dance performed in prelude to a drama. Sanskrit literature of medieval times describes several forms of group dances of this tradition such as Hallisaka, Rasaka, Dand Rasaka and Charchari.

India has numerous folk dances. Every state has its own folk dance forms.
