A perfect gift for a Odissi Dancer!

India is one culturally rich country, where almost every state has its own language, cuisine, and dance 
forms. When it comes to dance, India has traditional, classical, folk and tribal dance styles and all are simply amazing. All the incredible classical dances originated in the country during the ancient times, Odissi being one of the oldest and one of the most popular ones.

Based on archaeological evidence, Odissi is considered the oldest form of classical folk dancing in India. Findings place the origins of the dance at the Hindu temples of Odisha, on India’s spectacular eastern seaboard, where it is thought to have been performed since at least 500 BC.

The theoretical background of Odissi dancing is well documented in the ancient Sanskrit text, while its steps, forms and unique hand gestures are found inscribed on the sculptures and murals of Odisha’s Hindu temples and shrines. Odissi routines are based on mythical stories, devotional poems, and spiritual messages from Hindu texts, with dancers relying on ‘abhinaya’ expressions and ‘mudras’ gestures to the convey meaning. In the Odisha region, Odissi is today performed by a handful of religious factions, including Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
