Dance is defined as the rhythmic physical movement prompted by feelings and emotions. The rhythmie movement may be of any or all parts of the body in accordance to some scheme. Every beast and human being dances to express the innermost passions.But dance as an art came into existence with the growth of human society and civilisation. We find a detailed account of this art in several old Sanskrit works- Abhinaya Darpana, Bharata’s Natyashastra, Sangita Ratnakara, Dhananjaya’s Dasharupa etc. All these books give more or less the same account of the origin of Sangita.The dance in India can be classified into three groups: The Tribal, the Folk and the Classical. The Tribal dance is the visible rhythmic formulation or expression of the joys and beliefs of a people once referred to as ‘aborigines’, but are now called Aadivasis meaning ‘original inhabitants’. Almost akin to these dances but less ritualistic in content are the folk dances, which are as varied and as reflective of the day-to-day activities of the mass of the people as their primitive crystallised and transmuted into stylised interpretations of divine activities are the classical dance forms which are practised exclusively by the votary.Printed Pages: 250.
