For centuries in India, the Gotipua dance tradition has survived in the small village of Raghurajpur, Orissa. In Oriya language, "Goti" means "single" and "Pua" means "boy". This dance is only performed by young acrobat boys who dress up as female to praise Lord Krishna.
Abhinna Sundar Gotipua Dance Institute, directed by the young guru Basanta Kumar Moharana, continues this ancient tradition in the Heritage village of Raghurajpur.
