“Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.” So true! The divine feeling of dancing is an expression that is almost synonymous to meditation. It is an adornment of endless varieties of cultural patterns. India witnesses a diverse and varied culture when it comes to clothing forms, dance forms, language, beliefs and practices. It is in fact an amalgamation of all of these that binds the country together. If you go back to ancient times, you will see that the art form of dancing was a gesture of celebration, worshipping and much more. This art form was always conjoined with a typical clothing art form which gave any dance form a typical identity.
At Luxurion World we love our art forms and heritage, whether it is related to dance or clothing. This unique way of communication and expression is what has inspired to come up with the idea to correlate these two art forms. Let us see how!
Kathak is one of the most ancient dance forms of India. Kathak is associated with dancers wearing Banarasi saree in a particular style. Traditionally this dance was more religious in nature, narrating the stories of Radha and Krishna. Since this dance form has originated in U.P., the Banarasi saree used as a costume is so relevant and appropriate.
One of the most revered Indian classical dance forms, Bharatnatyam is a centuries old art. So is the Kanjeevaram silk costume that comes to be associated typically with this dance form. The origin of this dance style are the states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka and hence the use of vibrant and colourful Kanjeevaram silk which is inherent in those states.
A popular dance of Punjab which is performed by women folks is all about celebration, enjoyment and an undercurrent of high energy level. Clothing patterns are bright and beautiful phulkari work dupattas worn over salwar kameez.
This dance of Gujarat is definitely going to fascinate all with its energetic and enthusiastic performance. Women and men clad in traditional bandhani weave dazzling with small mirror work are so synonymous with this dance form. It is as if the vibrant colours seep in to create equal vibrant ambiance.
Bihu dance is mainly performed during Bihu festival where dancers wear colourful and traditional Assamese clothes. Mekhala-Chador and traditional jewellery adds spark to the dance form and the dancers alike. With these art forms, the popular folk and classical dancers gain a new height of magnamity. It is the garment donned by the dancers which make their art form mystical and spectators wanting for more.
