The Tale of  Dance

The Tale of Dance

I just loved these Rajasthani Dancers, with the flow of colour as they told their Epic Tale through Music and Dance.

This is one of my favorites, I just love the motion of the fabric within the dress, the power conveyed through the flow of fabric. This Dance reaches a pitch, speed and intensity that just makes your jaw drop and make you say WOW.

I think this is the best of the two you posted, the dresses motion and the splendid colours capture the eyes. Fantastic. Bye Simon.

Great capture..i would like to share some information bout this dance.This dance is called "Ghoomar"
A community dance of the Rajputs, performed by the women of the house and traditionally out of bounds for men, it uses simple, swaying movements to convey the spirit of any auspiciousoccassionn. There is, however, an amazing grace as the skirts flare slowly while the women twirl in circles, their faces covered by the veil. Traditionally, all women, whether old or young, participate in the dance, which can continue for hours into the night. A new bride, on being welcomed to the home of her husband, too is expected to dance the ghoomar as one of the rituals of the new marriage.
