Himachal is a land of dances. Its dance forms are varied and some are
quite complicated. These dances are an inseparable part of tribal life
which reflects the great perseverance and good humour of the human beings
in the face of poverty and death. No festivity here is completed without
dancing. The dance forms like Dulshol, Dharveshi, Drodi, Dev Naritya,
Rakshas Nritya, Dangi, Lasa, Nati and Nagas are danced all over the state
and provide a welcome break in the monotony of life. These last for hours
and the beats and gestures keep changing from one stage to another.
