We provide Ghode Modni (Goa)  Dance Troupe throughout India. Ghode Modni dance literally involves horse-like movements in its performances. It is a spectacular warrior-dance performed for the remembrance of the victory of the Ranes, the Maratha rulers of the Satari taluka in Goa, over the Portuguese. This dance is more popular in Bicholim, Pernem and Satari talukas, which was once ruled by the Marathas. It is also performed during the time of Shigmo festival in Goa. For the performance, the kshatriya dancers wear huge head gears made up of colourful flowers. Even the wooden horses are beautifully bridled and decorated with spotless white clothes and there are tied ghungurs on the anklets. The performance begins with the simple steps of the dance. Holding the bridle in one hand and brandishing and waving a naked sword in the other hand, the dancers take forward and backward steps on the beat of drums – Dhol, Tasha and Cymbals. These instruments are used to recreate the prancing of warhorses.
