    Dear Friends,

    There are many folk Dances are available in Tamil nadu. These dances are very nice to see and also make good exercise to the human body. The different types of folk dances are available in Tamil nadu. I would like to list out one by one.

    The very famous folk dance is Karagattam. It is very famous in the villages of TAMIL NADU. The peoples of this dance will do the dance with some objects carrying in their head. They will make dancing with the objects without dropping that and continuously four to five hours by balancing. The Karagattam is very famous during the Pongal festivals and functions in Tamil nadu temples. The political parties also arrange this dances during their celebrations of victory.

    The remaining dances like Kummi, Mayil Attam, Kolattam and Theru Koothu are seasonable folk dances which will be in the some places during the particular periods. The Kummi is done by the ladies in villages during their free times.

    The theru Koothu and Mayil Attam and Kolattam are done in various occasions.

    with regards,
