Hallisaka a group dance, in the Harivamsa Purana  is very significant. This is a group dance, in a circular formation  with the hands joined together forming a chain. The time (Tala) is kept by clapping and is accompanied  by singing. A young man (Krishna) stands in the middle of the damsels. The feet movements, toes, heels and legs first start  their journey to explore rhythmic expression measured steps, long, short, quick, and slow accompanied in single, double and triple timings.
