Characteristic Elements of the Kuthu Dance

  • The Kuthu dance is characterized by its energetic energy and pulsating music. Fast, rhythmic body movements are an essential part of this dance form, which is often accompanied by traditional Tamil music and heavy percussion.
  • The music that accompanies Kuthu is popularly referred to as “Gaana”: the underground, working-class musical genre that is often compared to rap music. The dancers use a combination of body movements, pelvic thrusts, hand gestures, and wild facial expressions that shakes off stress and keeps the heart pumping.
  • Kuthu dance is known for its vigorous, athletic style, which requires physical stamina and the ability to keep up with a steady beat. As opposed to the sweet and sensual facial expressions that we see in Bollywood dance,
  • Kuthu has a more spicy and wild facial expression with that swag and pure joy of enjoying and vibing to the Kuthu beat. In fact, those who are immersed in the music while dancing this genre often bite their lip or tongue depicting the raw energy and bliss they fill while dancing to the authentic kuthu rhythm.
