The Dhimas Dance of the Porja Caste was an exclusive Women's Dance.Praising deity for welfare of the domestic life. Nearly 15-20 women form a chain and dance wearing typical tribal dresses and ornaments. The leading women carry a peacock feather in her hand. It is a must for newly wed because on this day the women pray for a peaceful and happy married life. The members play instruments like Mori, Thuduma and Dappu. Now it is performed by Women and Men on special occassions and is dedicated to the welfare of the domestic life. The Men and Women of the Porja caste perform the Dance with great feeling. It is must for newly-wed because on this day the women pray for a peaceful and happy married life. Women Dance around in unison holding their hands together at wrists.

The dance with its simple rhythm and the earthy colours of the tribal wear focuses on the movement of the dancers without much emphasis on expression or a literary text. Red, yellow and green are the colours the tribes attire themselves in. Movements of the feet and the hands by the group dominate the dance. With an elemental rhythm and animated, quick steps with manoeuvres resembling the darting of a centipede its raw energy captivates one. One gets the impression that it is the collective performance that matters with each of them complementing the other and merging into a unifying whole.
