North of India has variety to the execution of its folk structure which is always influenced by the state in which the people have been and the environment has definitely been a deciding factor in it! For e.g. Very typical of North Indian dances is the intertwining of hands depicting the range itself in its diverse formations yet connected! Whatever the dance- a circular formation is common signifying the wheel of life and probably a better visibility to people standing/sitting in their fixed positions when the dancer comes towards and moves away from you - to show transition of what shall come - shall pass too! The more the divisions in the geographical layout the more the styles original to it- is what makes India rich and full of flavor in its folk culture. Come a variety !!
