Consider the following:
1. Manipuri Dance
2. Odissi Dance
3. Sattariya Dance
Which among the above involve themes related to Lord Krishna?

Answer: [D] 1, 2 & 3

Odissi dance is famous for its dances based on the Gita Govinda.  Krishna Leela is one of the Abhinaya in Bharatnatyam, Kathakali and Kuchipudi dances. The Rasa dance evolved with the legends of gopis and Krishna dancing together. The cult of Radha and Krishna, particularly the raslila, is central to the themes of Manipuri dance.  In Sattariya dance, one of the major dances is the Krishna Nritya which portrays the activities of young Krishna. Another dance style in Sattariya dance is based on the life of Lord Krishna; Nadubhangi Nritya covers the story of Lord Krishna defeating the poisonous snake “Kaliya”.
