According to traditions Manipuri people are the the Gandharvas in the Vedic texts. The Vedic Usha, the goddess of the dawn, created and taught the art of feminine dance to girls. Manipuri Dance is called Jagoi in a major Meitei language of the region and it traces a long tradition in Manipur.
The first dated written texts describing the art of Manipuri dance are from the early 18th-century.
The Manipuri dance is a team performance, with its own unique costumes, aesthetics, conventions and repertoire. The Manipuri dance drama is, for most part, marked by a performance that is graceful, fluid, sinuous with greater emphasis on hand and upper body gestures. It is accompanied with devotional music created with many instruments.
Manipuri dance is a religious art and its aim is the expression of spiritual values.
