Vasanth Ras:

Raas is a highly evolved dance drama, which depicts the union of Lord Krishna with his female devotees, the gopis, and in particular, his consort-devotee Radha. The dance embodies the rich Vaishnavite tradition of Manipur. The themes of the dances centre around 'Krishna Leela' or the different episodes from Lord Krishna?s life. Vasant Raas, which is one of the most beautiful Raas Leelas, is celebrated on Chaitra Purnima, the full moon night in the month of Chaitra. (April - May). The dance depicts the eternal love of Radha and Krishna.

Pung Cholam:

Pung Cholom dance is performed during the festival of Holi. Pung Cholom or Drum Dance is a visual interpretation of the various rhythmic patterns played on the pung. In this dance, the drummer identifies completely with the intricate rhythms he plays on the drum and expresses it through corresponding body movements and footwork. Pung Cholom is part of the music of the Sankirtan tradition and is acclaimed as one of the best art forms of the state.
