Wedding Oppana holds a significant place in the Malayalee Muslim community of Kerala. It is an integral part of most weddings, especially in the Malabar region, where its importance is profound. Oppana is a traditional dance form exclusively performed during Muslim wedding ceremonies and has deep historical roots in Kerala’s cultural heritage and Muslim traditions. It is a cherished dance with a great history in Kerala and among Muslims.

Even in modern times, despite the introduction of other dance forms like wedding sufi dance, Arabic dance, and Egyptian Tenora dance, traditional Oppana remains highly valued in Muslim weddings, particularly in northern Kerala and the Malabar area. In Calicut Oppana is commonly performed on the wedding day and even the day before, and it involves the entire family’s participation.

The bride’s side gives special importance to Oppana because it is a traditional dance specifically dedicated to the bride. It symbolizes a warm welcome to married life and the happiness of family life. Over time, professional dance teams have brought various forms of wedding Oppana, known as modern Oppana dance, but the traditional form has retained its significance and popularity in Kerala weddings.

How professional Calicut oppana dance team perform in wedding events?

In the Oppana dance, a group of girls gracefully dance around the bride, welcoming her into married life and singing about her groom or significant men in her life. The dance is performed in a circular style, and a minimum of six members are required for the Oppana team. However, the more girls participating in Oppana, the more attractive and captivating the performance becomes.

Our professional dance team starts the Oppana dance service by having the girls seated in the back of the wedding hall during the Mehndi ceremony. As the ceremony commences, the dance team escorts the bride through the dance of Oppana. This act is referred to as the welcome Oppana dance to the stage. The bride then enters the wedding stage, where the dancers help her to sit in a chair, and the traditional Oppana dance in a circular shape begins.

After each dance, the dancers change their costumes and get ready for the next performance. During the costume change, Mappilappatu singers sing songs to entertain the guests. This allows parents and relatives to have a Mehndi function on the same wedding stage. Mappilappatu singers play a vital role in filling the gap between dance performances, making the event colorful and vibrant.
