  1. Importance of Sattriya Dance :

 

Sattriya dance is devotional in nature as it was intended for propagation of neo-Vaishnavism. Its highlights are intense emotional fervor, and in its solo avatar now dramatic abhinaya is prominent in contrast to nrittya, pure dance.

The Sattriya dance, which is a prehistoric Indian classical dance form, is amongst the  8  most  renowned  Indian  traditional  dances.  The  great  saint  Srimanta  Sankardev  was  the founder of this dance and gave it the recognition and popularity, which till date stands extremely strong. Under the patronage of Srimanta Sankardev, the social and religious group known as the ‘Sattras’ formulated this dance to celebrate their beliefs which were embedded in Hinduism and its various teachings. The perfectly executed hand movements, bright and dramatic colored mekhela chadar worn by Assamese people, exuberant expressions and a sense of gaiety that creates a halo around this dance makes it nothing less of a visual treat for the spectators.
