Ghoomar

The Ghoomar is an all girl dance. It is popular in the areas that border Rajasthan. It is performed on various festivals like Holi, Gangor Puja and Teej. The beat is Kehrwa and they sing while they dance. The main steps consist of turning round gradually in a circle. Sometimes they form two rows and sing of their sister-in-law suiting the action to the words. Here also the tempo increases towards the end of the dance while the dancers whirl around in pairs.
