Acharuli Dance



Acharuli is a spontaneous form of dance and develops as it progresses. This form of dance does not conform to one particular style of dancing and follows random steps. It is a couple dance performed by a group of men and women. Men perform strong movements whereas the women perform in the lighter vein. The subtle nuances and the playful and flirtatious mood of its performing men and women is the main ingredient of the dance. The mood of the performing men and women defines the style of dancing the Acharuli dance, which is simple and definite.
