Why Folk Dances of India?
India is a country with diverse cultures and numerous traditions and festivals. Till date, there are over a 100 dance forms in the country. These folk dances vary with regions and are performed on different occasions, this diversity in the nature of dance forms encouraged us to form this digital gallery!
With this digital gallery, we aim to preserve the rapidly diminishing folk dance forms in India due to multiple factors such as rapid urbanization, western influence and lack of awareness amongst millennials. This is our little effort at preserving this important part of Indian Cultural Heritage through digitization.
