A unique traditional folk dance of Haryana, the Ghoomar dance is popular in the western parts of the state. Circular movements of the dancers mark this dance as different one. The girls from the border region of the state generally perform Ghoomar. The dancers, who take a circular mode and move about clapping and singing, perform this dance. The girls sing while they dance in a swirling movement and as the tempo of the music increases the girls form pairs and swirl faster and faster. The accompanying songs are full of satire, humour and refer to contemporary events, while the dancers twirl around in pairs. This dance is performed on occasion of festivals such as Holi, Gangaur Puja and Teej.
