Launda Dance is a traditional folk dance of Bihar, India, which is performed mainly by men. It is also known as Launda Nach or Launda Naach. This dance form is associated with the Bhojpuri-speaking regions of Bihar and is often performed during cultural festivals and weddings.

In the Launda Dance, male dancers dress up in colorful costumes and adorn themselves with jewelry, turbans, and garlands. They dance to the beats of folk music played on instruments such as the dhol, shehnai, and harmonium. The dance involves quick and energetic movements of the feet, along with gestures and expressions of the face and hands.

The Launda Dance is believed to have originated as a form of celebration and entertainment for the rural communities of Bihar, and it has since become an important part of the state’s cultural heritage.
