Kavadi Aattam

The ancient Tamils when they went on pilgrimage, carried the offerings to the gods tied on the either end of the long stick, which was balanced on the shoulders. In order to lessen the boredom of the long travel they used to sing and dance about the gods.

Bharatanatyam

Bharatanatyam is one of the oldest, most popular and widely practiced classical dance styles of India, with sculptural evidence dating back nearly 3000 years. A highly spiritual and dedicatory dance form.

Karagaattam

Karagam is a folk dance with musical accompaniment, performed balancing decorated pots on the head. It is known as ‘Aatta Karagam’ and symbolises joy and merriment. This is one of the more popular rural dances today. Earlier it was performed only with accompaniment of the Naiyandi Melam but now it includes songs also.

Kummi

Kummi is one of the most important and ancient forms of village dances of Tamilnadu. It originated when there were no musical instruments, with the participants clapping their hands to keep time. This is performed by women. The women stand in a circle and dance clapping their hands rhythmically for the songs. This dance is usually performed during temple festivals, Pongal, the harvest festival, and family functions.

Mayil Attam

This is done by girls dressed as peacocks, resplendent with peacock feathers and a glittering head-dress complete with a beak. They dance like peacocks.
