Lollywood – An Interesting Traditional Indian Dance Form
Lollywood is a traditional Indian dance form. There are many types of this dance and each has its own unique flavor. If you have never experienced this, then it is time to take a trip to Lollywood, in India and witness it for yourself.
This traditional dance is very elegant and graceful. It is usually performed in three steps. First, the dancer’s left foot should be placed on the floor in front of the dancers right foot. The right foot should be facing the dancers left foot and the left foot should be placed against the right foot of the first dancer.
Next, the dancer’s right foot should be placed firmly in the floor. Then the left foot should be lifted and placed behind the right foot. The dancer’s left hand should be placed firmly on the floor as well. After that, the right foot should be stepping forward to prepare the ball.
Now, the left foot should be raised to support the left hand and the right foot should be pulled up towards the shoulder so that the toes are pointed outwards. The dancer’s left hand should be placed on the left side of the body in an attempt to keep the body in place. Now, the right foot should be pushed forward until the toe is pointed outwards, again keeping the body in the same position. The dancer’s hand should now be placed in the left hand, this is known as the “dantat”.
The dancer then raises their arms upwards, almost like a salute, and pulls them downwards to the left and the feet together like they are grasping each other. This last step should be followed by the steps up to the ball or Chennai. This dance is done in a clockwise motion. When the dancer is about to perform the final step of the dansaka, which is similar to when you stand up after sitting for a while, the body should be spread evenly on the floor, while the feet should be resting against the ground. And, when the dancer is about to perform the final steps, they should bend and stretch their legs backwards and forwards.
It takes several times to perfect these basic steps. Some dances like Chandni Chathiwala and Dhanushka do not require any special footwork.
