Paroja Dance

The Paroja tribe, which inhabits parts of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa, has a typical folk dance of its own. This dance is performed by the women during the harvest season.

The dancers dress themselves in knee-length white sarees. They adorn themselves with finger rings, heavy brass anklets and tattoos on their legs and hands. This dance is performed to the beats of a traditional drum. Various interesting movements are produced by bending the body accompanied by a range of foot works. The women move in circles while performing the Paroja Dance.
