  • 3. RAJESH SAI BABU with his brother RAKESH SAI BABU founder of GURUKUL CHHAU DANCE SANGAM The company offer performance of Chhau dances, Bollywood, Contemporary and modern dances etc. Chhau dance (Oriya: ,Bengali: ) is a genre of Indian tribal martial dance which is popular in the Indian states of Odisha, Jharkhand and West Bengal. It is believed by some modern scholars that the word Chhau is derived from Sanskrit Chāya (shadow, image or mask), but according to Sitakant Mahapatra, it is derived from Chhauni (military camp). The use of swords and shields in combat, with a few martial arts moves thrown in, was all coherently infused with modern dance techniques, stylised gaits of birds and animals, and also movements based on the chores of village housewives. All present in one dance form that robs your senses with extravagance.
