Corporate Event Folk Dance at TatSaraasa Resort & Spa Udaipur, Rajasthan
Ghumar and Jhumar are the main dances of Rajasthan. These dances are performed on important occasions and festivals. On the festival of Holi, Deepawali and Gangaur the atmosphere reverberates with Ghumar dance. In Ghumar, dance performing women wear ‘Lahanga’ and ‘Odhni’ and carry large plates full of lighted earthen lamps while moving their feet. In this dance, women move in a circle and because of this movement it is called Ghumar. Like Ghumar in Rajasthan, ‘Bhawai’ dance is also practised widely. ‘Bhawai’ is a dance of a sub-caste of Rajasthan. This is a dance of the men folk and is based upon a narrative. The narrative is particularly accompanied with song and dance. The entire dance is organized on the basis of local folklores and the performers of the dance keep on moving from place to place.
