Since times immemorials, myriad forms of dance have been adsorbed into the classical dance styles. Watching these performances reveal the age-old trends, trits and nuances that are firmly estabilished in dance in various regions of india.
The aura of these masterpieces has not dimmed over many centiries; nor have the living traditions of these styles lost their fluidity and charm over the long passage of time. Indian traditions of dance have been considered to be divine in origin. In indian mythodilogy, the gods and goddesses are great lovers of music that comproses vocal singing, instrumental music and dance.
Some of the gods are great dancers themselves. Shiva\'s cosmic dance, the Tandava, Lord Krishna\'s Rass Leela with the Gopis (female partners), and the legendry beautiful and most skilled dancers known as apsaras, such as Menaka, Urvashi and Rambha, in the celestical court of Lord Indra, the King of Gods, are well versed in the heavenly art of music and dance.

These dances materialize against the backdrop of the glorious temples of Khajuraho, which stand a testimony to the glorious past of India\'s cultural richness. This temple complex glows with the warmth of sandstone which is ornamented with the sinous curves of sculpture unparalleled in their beauty.
Paying rich tributes to those unnamed and forgotten sculptors, who built these monuments masterpieces, a Hindi poet has rightly said.
