Each emotion in this art form is usually practised for ensuring the right delivery. Now, coming to ‘Dance’- a person performing dance needs specific training for gaining perfection in their skills. This is basically a combination of drama and music, wherein the performer performs by the rhythmic movement of the body. This art requires a lot of synchronization with the background music or beat, each of these mediums draw their relevance from Indian culture.
