its called Koyilattam or Salangayattam or Salagaiyattam or Oyilattam. which
literally means temple dance / ankle bell dance / gracefull dance. you can
search for Salangayattam and enjoy it.

You can also search/google and see Salangayattam, In Kongu region in India,
they dance on a Thanksgiving day called Pongal to thank Nature or God and
also to thank cattle specially cow for working in fields and for producing
Milk. even the drums that they are using is as same as the ancient one to
name some they are Thudumbu, Thappu, Thamukku, Urumi and pipe instruments
are called as Kombu like Horn in English. Hope you enjoyed it

This dance is called by many names in my Region that is the Kongu region
they call it as Salangayattam, Salangai means a bunch of small bells
arranged by fixing it in a leather anklet and attam means dance. they dance
during special occasions and temple festivals, the temple you see here is a
temple for goddess and to please her every year they raise a post with fire
and dance like this for a couple of weeks, its just a social event which is
done as like in 3000bc.
