The Kalbeliyas is a snake-charmer community from Rajasthan, which performs the Kalbeliya. They rely heavily on this dance performance for their living. The Kalbeliya women dancers wear long, black colored, brindled-skirts heavily worked with embroidery and light-colored thread along with small pieces of mirrors. This costume draws attention in a somewhat strange way.
The dance is usually performed by a group of two women standing in the center of the stage. After this pair, another pair of women comes & dances in the same way. As the women dancers move in a circle, while dancing, their bodies sway acrobatically, leaving an impression that they are made up of some flexible material like rubber. The beat of the dance increases in tempo and also there is an increase in the pace of the dance. This dance performance leaves the viewer as exhausted as the dancer. The overall performance consists of many fearful actions performed by dancers. The performance relies heavily on the music of `been` and `duff`. The actual fun of their performance can be enjoyed at the gatherings somewhere around the festival of Holi.
