Would you like to learn more about India and its treasures?Well one such treasure is - kalbelia- also known as Sapera or Snake Charmer Dance. This dance is performed by a Rajasthani tribe which mainly resides in the Jaisalmer region. In this dance a variety of instruments are played by men whilst dance is performed by women. Sapera Dance is a vital part of the Rajasthan’s culture and tradition. The tribe who invented this dance form is Kalbelia. Since they were nomadic they travelled from place to place. That is why the dance is known and popular all over Rajasthan.
The dance and songs are neither taught in any school or institute nor are there proper manuscripts and written books to learn from. Following the oral tradition the dance is taught by one generation to another.
All the ladies are welcome to this exotic dance taught by Monica.
