Kikli, is one of the folk dances of Punjabi females performed by two girls holding hands and twirling each other in a circle, and balancing their positions in circular motions. It is generally popular in young girls and performed in pairs. A variety of songs are used with clapping.
It is more of a sport than a dance for young girls. Two girls stand face to face close to each other and hold their hands crossing arms with their bodies inclined back in this position their arms are stretched to the maximum and hands interlock firmly. Then they wheel round fast continuously with their dupattas floating in the air and anklets making a tinkling sounds. The other ladies encourage them to go faster and faster by singing songs with clapping. Sometimes it is done by four girls. The folk song related to the dance has much variety.
