The Pung Cholom is a unique classical dance of Manipur.In this style, the dancers play the pung (a form of hand beaten drum) while they dance at the same time. They use acrobatic movements without breaking the rhythm or flow of music.
The dance is marked by a gentle rhythm, which gradually builds up to a thunderous climax. Pung cholom borrows elements from the Manipuri martial arts Thang Ta and Sarit Sarak.
