We all know that  India fascinates the whole world especially when it comes to Dance.  Each form represents the culture and ethos of a particular region or a group of people.  Some forms are purely entertaining and some are soul-liberating .  There are Dances performed in royal courts to the accompaniment of classical music and this was an intellectual art form. A very important feature of Indian classical dances is the use of the mudra or hand gestures by the artists as a short-hand sign language to narrate a story and to demonstrate certain concepts such as objects, weather, nature and emotion. Many classical dances include facial expressions as an integral part of the dance form.

Some may think their dance looks funny, but for me it is not.  Actually I made an acrylic painting on paper,  an Indian couple dancing, enjoying their company, the music and the good weather  is dancing with them too.  I painted this 11 years ago 🙂
