Dance Pants | College Study Abroad
One of my favourite opportunities in Hyderabad has been learning the basics of Kuchipudi, a South Indian classical dance form. Coming from my own background in western dance, it was a completely new paradigm for me— sometimes it felt like learning to walk all over again. We were drilled on technique, built up muscles we didn’t know we had, and completed our final showcase after five long hours getting into the proper costumes and makeup. While the technique may have been new to me, the process was not, as back in Canada I had gone through many a dance class and performance before.
However, what astonished me about dancing in Hyderabad is that I was never only dancing in class. Dance, both formal and informal, was integrated into the rest of life in ways I had never experienced before, from wholesome interactions in social dance to its role in local religious life. I am grateful that through dance I was welcomed into meaningful facets of strangers’ lives.
Back in Canada and America, I think that most of us tend to experience dance in two ways, either as a professional performance or out in parties and clubs. If you’re not someone who has committed to learning and performing dance, it’s probably not a big part of your life, and when you do dance with friends, it’s most likely in a low visibility place where you don’t have to worry about being seen. Dancing like nobody is watching can definitely help a lot of us to finally get out of our heads and enjoy the personal experience, but I’ve started to ask myself, why can’t all our dancing be seen? Why do we have to keep our unpolished, rhythmless joy contained for only ourselves?
In Hyderabad, I’ve had my fair share of ungraceful moments. From almost being hit by motorbikes to spilling my chai everywhere, there have been countless times I wished that no one saw me dance out of the way of screeching tires and burning beverages. This has not been aided by the fact that, because I look noticeably foreign, I tend to attract attention no matter what. Still, just like back home, no matter how many eyes are on you when you mess up, playing it off with confidence will always be the best course of action.
I got to apply this same mentality to dance in my first festival experience of my trip, Ganesh Chathurti. My CIEE advisor invited us over to her housing colony for their celebrations, where we dressed up, and joined hundreds of neighbours in a loud dancing procession of the Ganesh idol, on the way to being submerged in the lake. I didn’t quite know how to dance to those kind of drums, and I didn’t know if I’d be welcome to participate. But after dancing a bit too timidly, then dancing a bit too hard, I learned that nobody really cared, even though I was definitely being seen messing up and goofing around dancing. I’d never experienced a religious ceremony that involved bopping to the best of Bollywood beats down the street for hours but I would certainly recommend it now.
Everyone from kids to older women in the procession all had the same general approach to dancing as well. This entailed creating small circles with strangers, where someone introduces a move that gets copied, so that everyone can do the same dance and contribute to its development together before breaking off to form new groups of strangers in the procession. (Check out a bit of that at play at Ganesh Chathurti in the video!) Of course, this was a really enjoyable contrast to dancing with friends where you never want to be watched closely, nevertheless imitated for your relatively simple dance moves. This got to be more social, less introspective.
Of course, not everybody wants to dance with strangers paying attention to and copying your moves. For some people, it can be really stressful to focus on following someone else’s lead or to try to take it themself, so it could be really difficult to get out of one’s head and just have a good time. I was glad to find that I didn’t need to copy new moves well in order to at least get the idea and still follow the same rhythm laughing with strangers. And it wasn’t just this festival! The same thing happened during Krishna Janmashtami, Navratri, and even when we went clubbing in Mumbai.
The gist of this social dance experience seemed to be a much more casual and accessible approach to dance. You don’t need to be an ordained professional to participate, wether the dancing is religious or secular. Of course, there are many other traditions in South Asia that are more restrictive and rigorous with their religious dance practices, and that certainly has its own advantages, so I don’t pretend to claim that this is a universally followed approach to dance.
Still, this idea of casual religiosity and artistic expression also applies to the more formal areas of dance, like Kuchipudi. As a part of my class, I got to see a few different dance performances around the city and within the university.
While I’m used to watching classical dance take place in silent, dark, highly polished auditoriums, it was remarkable to see these performances presented a significantly less rigid audience. People would filter in, filter out, take pictures, be chatting– no problem. This was shocking to me, especially since most forms of Indian classical dance are explicitly religious practices, which involve years of training, ritual rites of passage, and a continuous adherence to the practice.
Maybe my view of religion as a silent, highly focused practice has been too narrow– who’s to say that arts and religion have to occupy our full unadulterated attention in order to be affective? That’s certainly putting a lot of pressure on the performer, and it makes the audience members seem lifeless, silent, and rid of their everyday individuality. Besides, if religion is adopted as a lifestyle, it is not just relegated to certain spaces and contexts, but is casually integrated and present within everyday lives.
There is so much more for me to learn about dance in South Asia, but until I find an opportunity to come back and keep exploring, I will gratefully leave having learned not to care if I’m being watched while I dance, performance or not.
Vogue Recreates the Macarena dance with Bad Bunny
Before there were TikTok dances, there was the “Macarena.” It played at every school dance, bar mitzvah, graduation, and birthday in the late ’90s and early 2000s. Released in 1996, it spent more than 14 weeks on the top 100 and has remained in our hearts ever since. While it has become a slightly nostalgic household name alongside “The Hustle” or “The Electric Slide,” there’s an argument to be made that the “Macarena” has never felt more now. It’s a blueprint to what makes a viral TikTok: a delicious earworm tune accompanied by an easy-to-remember dance. In Vogue’s latest spring 2022 collections video, the song makes a comeback, scoring a visual feast of Y2K-minded clothing featuring top models and Bad Bunny.
In its original iteration, the “Macarena” is a flirtatious song, with lyrics like: They can’t have me / So they all come and dance beside me. The music video shows a bevy of babes in the era’s fab fashions, along with the two original singers, Antonio Romero Monge and Rafael Ruiz Perdigones of the group Los del Río. The hip-shaking ladies are in itty-bitty booty shorts, go-go boots, slick suits, and all-things midriff-revealing. Slice and dice it, and it could easily live on TikTok. “I feel like the ‘Macarena’ ties more culturally to the TikTok dance trend phenomenon,” says the video director’s Bardia Zeinali. “The video has a lot of grids and a slot machine effect that is vertical.”
The Vogue-ified version delivers all of the goods but au courant. Imaan Hammam sports a thimble-sized metallic skirt and glittering halter top from Versace. Paloma Elsesser shakes her hips in a cut-out lime green Coperni top and a pleated Collina Strada tennis skirt. Oyinda rocks a denim off-the-shoulder dress with a bold butterfly belt by Blumarine—aka the darling ’00s brand of now. Sherrie lip syncs in a glitzy top and baggy pants by Stella McCartney, along with Apple Airpods Max. Bad Bunny is a heartthrob as he grooves in a shiny lime green Bottega Veneta jacket and pants, and his own signature shades courtesy of Versace.
The Macarena remake coincides with the early aughts frenzy in fashion. Bellies are becoming barer. Pants are dangerously low-slung. Tops are tighter. Colors are blindingly bright and prints are kaleidoscopic. Fashion has become a perpetual party of maximalist nostalgia, and TikTok is a great medium to showcase it. Besides, doing the “Macarena” sounds like the perfect challenge to show off your best, sauciest clothes.

The dancing father-son duo can have nailed this dance by following all the steps correctly while keeping up with the rhythm.

Since it has been shared on Instagram, the video has garnered more than 300,000 likes.
Internet users praised the father-son duo for their amazing dance performance and many users also tagged Badshah in the comment section of the video.

National costumes of India amaze with their brilliance and brightness. They are incredibly beautiful and luxurious.
A bit of history
Indians have been making clothes for a long time. Historical information that has come down to us since the 5th millennium BC in the form of rock paintings, objects found by archaeologists indicate that even in those distant times, the population of India could produce cotton fabric.Cotton was the optimal raw material, and clothing was comfortable and suitable for the hot climate of the subtropics.
Social inequality manifested itself in the presence of varnas (estates). Belonging to a certain varna dictated all living conditions. Each varna had its own costume and fabric from which it was made. So, the lower class did not have the right to wear linen clothes. Only priests (brahmanas) and warriors (kshatriyas) had such a right.The nobility wore clothes made of silk and muslin, often decorated with gold embroidery, natural fur – sable, ermine, beaver.
The Indian costume was greatly influenced by the neighboring states, the colonial invaders. The upper caftan of Indian kings was borrowed from the gentry (kontush).
The development of trade routes had a positive impact on the development of Indian weaving skills.New dyes and fabrics have appeared. Roman traders introduced the indigo color, and China introduced silk.
Despite the enormous impact of external factors, India has managed to preserve its identity and not dissolve in the culture of the peoples who have inhabited its territory for many centuries.
Colors and patterns
Color is of great importance in Indian clothing.Each color and pattern has its own secret meaning. For a European, Indian fabric is a riot of bright colors and motifs intertwined with each other. A resident of India will see in it much more than, for example, a floral or geometric motif.
One of the most widespread and oldest ornaments is paisley (cucumber, buta).It is believed to symbolize a fiery flame, the embodiment of human life. Therefore, the ornament is widely used in the manufacture of wedding clothing.
India is a state where people of various confessions live. The population professing Islam prefers floral designs on fabrics. The most popular element is the lotus, a sacred flower that is the embodiment of wisdom, harmony and creativity.It is believed that the lotus can fulfill the most secret desires.
Pomegranate and mango fruits, cypress, palm, carnation are no less favorite plant patterns.
Geometric patterns on fabric are very interesting. Each of them has its own sacred meaning:
- The triangle with the point upward is a masculine symbol, denoting fire.
- A triangle with a downward-pointing edge is a feminine sign, symbolizing mercy, water.
- Circle – development and integrity. Together with the fiery flame, birth.
- Octagon – protection.
- The square is a symbol of honesty, stability and your own home.
- Cross – energy, connection between heaven and earth.
Symbolism of flowers:
- Red is a holiday. Used in clothing for celebrations, weddings.
- Orange is a fiery color. In a woman’s clothes it symbolizes fidelity, the warmth of the family hearth, in a man’s – the rejection of all the benefits of everyday life.
- Yellow is the color of the gods. He was credited with the ability to cleanse the body and soul. Color is associated with harmony and thirst for knowledge.
- Green – appeasement.
- Blue – courage, the fight against evil. In some parts of India, blue clothes are worn only by the lower classes, since it was the poor who were engaged in the manufacture of this coloring pigment.
- White is a symbol of peace and purity. This color is the result of mixing the entire spectrum, so it owns a portion of each color component.
Cotton and silk are the main types of fabrics used by Indians.
Cashmere is used in northern India where the air is cool. For its manufacture, thin goat hair is taken. Cashmere is a very warm and delicate material. Sheep wool fabrics are used to make caftans for men.
Cashmere shawls are decorated with gold and silver threads, embroidery.
Brocade is popular in India.It is used for sewing men’s caftans and hats.
Indian costume is an abundance of folds, smoothly falling and forming beautiful draperies.
The most famous attire is the sari. It is still in demand anywhere in the country.The length of the cloth for the formation of this type of clothing reaches 9 meters. A piece of linen wraps around the waist and covers the woman’s shoulder. A skirt and a blouse are worn under the sari.
Tunic and trousers-trousers – attire of women of the north-western part of India, called salwar kameez. The film industry often uses this type of clothing in its films, as it combines both traditional and modern clothing styles.Bollywood stars look great in salwar kameez.
A long skirt with numerous folds, a tight-fitting blouse with short sleeves and a deep neckline is a lehenga-choli (by the name of its constituent components). This type of clothing is often worn by unmarried women.
Little girls from the southern provinces of India wear pattu-pawadai, a conical silk dress with a gold stripe running down the bottom of the garment.
Traditional men’s clothing includes a long jacket (shervani), a loose-fitting knee-length shirt (kurta), trousers that fit around the ankles (churidar).
Accessories and jewelry
Jewelry is an integral part of Indian costume. There is a characteristic feature that makes Indian jewelry recognizable all over the world.They are symmetrical, despite the apparent at first glance a scatter of ornamentation, multi-colored stones and paints.
Women wear strings of jewelry on their heads, descending in the form of a pendant on the forehead: sringar-patti, tika.
The bride has her own decorations.Nat is a nose ring. A chain with stones is attached behind the ear.
Bracelets worn by Indian married women are called churi. Ivory, corals, glass, precious metals are used for their manufacture. The number of bracelets on one hand reaches 24.
Ornaments on the neck are called haara.Indians believe that they bring good luck, preserve love, and protect from the evil eye.
Brides adorn their feet with rings and bracelets.
The traditional shoes of the Indians are sandals (chappalas) or leather shoes.The upper castes wore shoes with colored heels.
Poor people used reeds and tree bark as raw materials to make shoes.
Sari and choli – traditional women’s costume.Despite the influence of the Greeks, Persians and Mongols, this type of clothing has not undergone any obvious changes and is currently popular in India. The colors of the saree are very vibrant and rich.
Men’s costume consists of a loincloth (dhoti), shirt and cape. Representatives of the highest varna had the right to wear a sacred thread – three threads that encircled the back and chest over the left shoulder.
The rajah’s attire was luxurious: silk, richly decorated with gold and precious stones.
The warrior’s outfit was not distinguished by pomp and beauty: a long shirt with red trim and turbans. The military leaders adorned their clothes with silver ornaments.
Traditional costume in the modern world
The latest trends and trends in the fashion world could not but influence the costume of a resident of India today. On the streets of cities you can meet women in traditional clothes and in jeans and a top.
Modern style combines tradition and innovation. This is manifested in the use of a variety of fabrics and mixing elements of clothing: a turban fits perfectly into a business suit, jeans are combined with kurta, and dhoti with sneakers.
At the moment there is an interest in Indian dances.Many women are seriously addicted to such activities. Appropriate costumes help to immerse oneself in the world of music.
For the classical Indian dance, the Mohiniattam need: white clothes, trimmed with gold and red border; corrugated skirt; ornaments in the form of a flower garland or gold beads.
Bollywood style requires bright and colorful costumes. Moreover, they must have the same length and shape. The soloist is somewhat different from the general mass, being a certain exception.

Indian national costumes are very diverse and vary depending on nationality, geography, climate and cultural traditions.The materials used for the manufacture of clothing have a different weaving structure, fiber thickness, color and characteristic ornament. Moreover, designs on fabric are often done using embroidery.
A bit of history
During the excavations, numerous bone needles and spinning wheels were found dating back about five thousand years BC. Recent research suggests that it is possible that Indians mastered the process of making and processing silk long before the Chinese civilization, which is traditionally considered to be the discoverer of silk fabrics.
Various weaving techniques were used in ancient India, many of which have survived to this day. Silk and cotton have been woven into different designs and motifs, with each region developing its own distinct style and technique. Under the influence of the culture of Ancient Persia, Indian craftsmen began to embroider fabrics with gold and silver threads.
Clothing dyeing was practiced in ancient India as an art form.Five primary colors were identified, and complex colors were classified according to their many shades. Dyeing masters distinguished 5 shades of white. The mordant dyeing technique has been widespread in India since the second millennium BC.
For the manufacture of their costumes, the Indians also used another material – linen. Flax is ideally suited for its qualities and properties for the hot humid climate of India.
In the north of the country, the Kashmir shawl is often used. It is made from fine goat hair. It warms up perfectly on cool evenings.
The Indians are very fond of brocade.Caftans are often sewn from this fabric embroidered with gold.
Women’s national costume
In India, the options for women’s costume are extremely multifaceted, and are inextricably linked with the living conditions, traditions of each region separately. She is always incredibly beautiful, exquisite and replete with a variety of ornaments, embroidery and adornments.
The manufacture of these garments requires special skill, which is why Indian tailors are highly respected by the population.
The traditional dress, the sari, has become world famous. A sari is a strip of ripped fabric, from four to nine meters in length, which can be thrown over the body in a variety of variations. The most common style of wearing a saree is when the fabric is wrapped around the waist with one end, and the other end is draped over the shoulder, exposing the belly.Silk sarees are considered the most elegant.
For special occasions or weddings, the sari is made to order. The artist uses exclusive colors and patterns to create a unique look. An interesting fact is that after the order is completed, all sketches are burned. Therefore, no two holiday sarees are the same.
Sari has a different name in different parts of the country.In the south of India, a snow-white sari decorated with a gold border, which is used only on special occasions, is called kavanis. Mundu is called a casual sari in light colors. In Tamil Nadu it is called Padawai.
Sari is usually worn together with a short blouse with short sleeves and a deep cut on the chest that slightly reveals the belly – choli.
The oldest type of saree. It is worn without choli. Since it completely covers the hips, chest and abdomen of the woman, leaving the shoulders bare.
This is also a variant of the women’s traditional costume. It is a skirt (lenga) of various lengths, strongly flared and similar to an umbrella and choli.The length of lengi depends on the age and status of the woman.
Representatives of the highest castes can afford a skirt of maximum length. Festive lehenga-choli is sewn from expensive fabrics, embroidered with beads and gold, and can be of various colors. Although more recently, only red clothing was considered solemn.
For young girls, the traditional costume consists of lengi, choli and a stole, which they put on themselves like a sari. When they come of age, they already prefer to wear a classic saree.
Or shalwar-kameez is another type of national female dress, most common in the northwestern parts of the country (Punjab region). It is very popular with the female population, especially young girls. Consists of loose trousers (salwar) narrow at the very bottom at the ankles, and a tunic (kameez), flared at the bottom and having slits on the sides.Shalwar drapes beautifully in many folds.
Very often women wear a veil that covers their heads together with salwar kameez. It is called dupatta. In ancient times, only Indian women of the highest castes could afford to wear dupattu. Now it is available to everyone and is an integral part of a festive costume. Dupattu is sewn from chiffon, brocade, silk, cotton – it depends on the style of salwar kamiz.
Salwar Kamiz is most popular with Bollywood stars.
This is a dress for a little Indian girl. The traditional children’s costume is made of silk. This is a tunic that falls almost to the toes. Pavada is the most popular among the population of South India. During important ceremonies, children dress up in this costume.
It is a type of shalwar-kamiz. In this case, the pants (churidar) are tapered and fit the leg very tightly just below the knee. These trousers go well with an elongated tunic (kurta). Unlike kameez, the kurta has a loose cut, shorter with a rounded hem.
Luxurious light flared dress.Anarkali always has a high waist and is long enough to be worn separately without being combined with pants. This is exactly what attracted European women. Who like to use Indian style outfits lately. Anarkali perfectly hides the flaws of any figure.
Attire typical for Assamese women.
This complex suit consists of three parts:
- The lower part is called mekkhela.This is a fairly wide piece of fabric, which is folded, forming many folds on the right side, and wrapped around the belt. Despite the presence of ribbons on the fabric, they are not tied.
- The second part of the costume is the chador. This is a fabric that has triangular folds and is very long. She covers the woman’s torso from above.
- And the last part is the riha. It is worn last over the chador.
This suit is not suitable for everyday wear, it is used in special situations, at important celebrations.
Men’s national costume
Men’s national clothes, like women’s, are unique and distinctive, but at the same time they are not devoid of convenience and elegance. No holiday or celebration is possible without wearing a traditional costume.
- Dhoti is a long, up to 6 meters long cotton cloth of a light, most often white shade.This fabric is wrapped around the thighs so that the ends are passed between the legs and tied in a knot at the waist. Such a structure is attached to the belt, the decoration of which indicates the status of the owner. Paintings and ornaments on the belt are an integral part of a wealthy Indian.
The length of the dhoti, like lengi for women, differs depending on the social status of the man.Ordinary residents of rural areas wear shortened dhoti, as it is more convenient and does not interfere with work. Due to the influence of Western culture, dhoti is increasingly being replaced by ordinary European clothing. But it is still an integral part of official events.
Dhoti is worn with a regular shirt or with a kurta – an elongated straight-cut shirt that reaches the knees.
- Lungi is a long canvas, sometimes in the form of a skirt. It is wrapped around the legs and hips of a man. Lungi is very popular in the south of the country, as it is difficult to wear regular pants in high heat and humidity. And lungi allows shelter from the heat without obstructing ventilation.
- Shervani is an elongated jacket or frock coat, the length of which reaches the knees. Fastening with all buttons is a prerequisite for wearing. Looks good with both wide trousers and narrow churidars.Ideal for tall men. Local rajas do not skimp, acquiring shervanis, embroidering them with gold, precious stones, satin. After all, nothing adds grace and stature like a luxurious shervani.
- The most famous headdress in the Indian national costume was and remains the turban. There are so many provinces in India, so many turban options can be found while traveling around the country. Now the original purpose of the turban is already forgotten to save the head from overheating on a hot afternoon. But the damp cloth, tightly wrapped around the head, chilled most of the day, giving freshness.
Now a turban is an indicator of the owner’s status, his religiosity. There are different types of this headdress. The most famous model is Mysore Peta, without which the costume of the Indian Raja could not do.
An additional element of the male costume of the representative of the highest caste was a cord, which the Indians considered sacred. It had to be worn over clothing, girdling itself through the chest and back.
Indian dance costumes
Indian dance, like Indian costume, is inimitable and unique. There are a lot of styles and trends in it, therefore there are also a great variety of dance costumes. In saris, classical Indian dances, kathak and pop dances are usually danced. For the bharatanatyam style, the famous dancer Rukmini Devi Arundale modified the sari, giving it the look of a wide “pajamas”. An obligatory element of this costume is a gold border framing the edges of the dress elements.
The classical dance Mohiniattam is distinguished by its melody, gracefulness and beauty, therefore, the costumes of the dancers are always performed in white colors with gold trimmings.A golden apron, worn over a snow-white skirt, adds charm to the dance. This dance was created like the dance of the priestesses of the temple, therefore the costumes reflect this idea.
If the dance is not classical, but stylized according to it, then both Indian music and modern music can be used. Therefore, such a dance allows the use of salwar kamiz, lehenga choli and other combinations of traditional clothing.
Bollywood dance style is a very popular phenomenon in modern India. Dance attracts modern young people and girls with its energy and mass character. Therefore, costumes for the Bollywood style always have the same cut, length and style, but must be different in color. And only the soloist is allowed to stand out from the crowd.
Children’s dance costumes usually do not differ much from adults, with the exception of the length and the number of decorations. As a rule, girls wear cropped skirts, and the number of bracelets is kept to a minimum for the convenience of little dancers.
The long colonization of India by Great Britain did not go unnoticed and was reflected in all spheres of Indian life. Western culture has left an indelible mark in the image of the modern Indian. More and more often you can find European jeans or T-shirts on the streets of the city.Children prefer modern clothes. Nevertheless, Indians highly value their culture and express their identity in every possible way, appearing at gala receptions, weddings and other significant events in traditional men’s and women’s national costumes.
And vice versa, trying to diversify their wardrobe and introduce elements of oriental flavor, European women constantly use elements in Indian style in their images.
Clothes for Indian dances
Classes in Indian dances perfectly develop the flexibility of the body and soul. Naturally, even by practicing for a long time and diligently, it is impossible to achieve the absolute authenticity of the dance, if only because it is impossible to turn into an Indian simply by having a strong desire for it. Nevertheless, the correct selection of the costume allows you to get as close as possible to the desired goal, because clothes for Indian dances are so colorful and recognizable that it always evokes a strong association with Indian culture.
Clothes for Indian classical dance
There are about a dozen varieties of Indian classical dance, which are taught outside of India (but each also has its own subspecies). Different dance traditions have their own characteristics, in movements, in music, and attire. For example, the lyrical dance Mohiniattam is characterized by white clothes, trimmed with gold or red and gold borders. Skirts for this dance can be corrugated, or they can be even, but then something like a gold apron is worn over the skirt, corrugated and gathered in a semicircle at hip level.The dancer’s hair is tied to the left side and framed with a thin garland of white flowers and gold beads. Mohiniattam – originated as a female temple dance, a dance of magic and charm, so clothes reflect these qualities.
Most of Indian dances were formed as religious, temple traditions. For this reason, clothing for classical Indian dances should be clearly matched to the specific dance.
Clothes for stylized Indian dances
If you do not want to study the canons of classical Indian dance traditions for a long time, you can resort to stylization.To any modern melody, a sequence of classical movements is performed, and it is even possible to combine or mix different styles. For such a dance, the clothes are selected not typical, but according to the individual taste of the performer. Skirts in a wide fold over narrow white or red trousers, gold monistas, wide belts with forged or embossed ornaments look great. The main thing in the selection is to adhere to the recognizable style of Indian clothing.

Therefore, the suit must allow all movements to be carried out without the risk of being torn. The general synchronicity and mass character requires the performers of the costumes of the same length and, preferably, form, the only exception can be the soloist.Bollywood style involves bright decorations and colors of dresses, but without losing the Indian flavor.
