Indian dance in Udaipur

DSC_9690Udaipur, a most beautiful city in Rajastan, has so much to offer; after my Indian cooking class, which I had already written a post about, I rushed over to the Haveli Museum, where every evening takes place a performance of Indian dance in the atrium of this old museum.

Very skillful women swirling around in their most colorful costumes, performing their dances with knifes, chimes  or pots of  burning flames on their head showing their most acrobatic talents.
