Each country in Asia has several indigenous and ethnic groups within its own country. These groups have their own unique identities and traditions, which are also visible in their dances. These create several dancing diversities for each country. The mythical stories, the tribal and religious rituals and from the everyday events that signify good and bad are what inspired some of these Asian dances. This article celebrates the diversity in Asian dances but will highlight only a small collection of dances from some of these Asian countries.
