Santhal dance is generally performed by both the men and women of the Santhali tribe. The dance is basically performed on special occasions. During the spring festival, it is performed to the glory of nature. There are various kinds of dance like the Dang dance performed during marriage rituals. Other popular dances include the Sohrai, which is a harvest dance, inviting all the village folk to come out of their homes and join in the festivities, and the Dasai, a dance performed just before the Durga Puja, when the Santhali men go out to the neighbouring villages, where they sing and dance to collect donations of rice and alms.
