Out of the innumerable folk dances and forms encountered in Goa, the legendary fishermen dance and traditional Goan Carnival folk dance were remarkable performances, which very vividly highlighted Goan tradition of thousands of years. The main attraction of the show was Shiv Tandav dance, depicting anger, passion and intense energy, describing Shiva’s power and beauty. The dance was performed by the boys, as a symbol to highlight its significance at the time of wars, using the same as self-defence and to strengthen the warriors of the tribe. The Adivasi or Jharkhand tribal dance was quite aesthetic, encompassing, the culture, traditions and folk lore of the state. The most vibrant and rhythmic dance forms of India, The Cheraw Kan or Bamboo Dance of Nagaland, was another mesmerizing performance by the students.
