So todays theme is

MOVEMENT (Shaking, Falling, Bouncing, Jumping, Curling, Sagging,…)

And what better to represent it than a Kalbeliya Dance


Some information on Kalbeliya from google

One of the most sensuous dance forms of Rajasthan, performed by the Kalbeliya snake charmers’ community, the sapera dancers wear long, black skirts embroidered with silver ribbons. As they spin in a circle, their body sways acrobatically, so that it is impossible to believe that they are made of anything other than rubber. As the beat increases in tempo, the pace increases to such a pitch that it leaves the viewer as exhausted as the dancer. Their women whirl and sway in village fairs. The pace is fast, and combined with their colourful costumes and sinuous bodies the effect is heady.

Watching the Kalbeliya women dance is an experience which is a must have in life I think. The women have a rare balance of beauty, rustiness, grace, elegance, energy and sensuality when they are dancing

A sight to watch and cherish forever
