Dandiya Dance

Dandiya is the most important dance of Navratri evenings in Gujarat. An idolization of nari-shakti, the dandiya epitomizes the victory of good over evil. It is very simple dance and is performed by a group who move in circles to measure steps, marking time by sticks called dandia. The sticks of the dance represent the sword of Durga.
Varied colored sticks, beautiful traditional costumes comprising of ballooned skirts and ornate blouses embellished with lovely embroidery and mirror craft, eye-catching accessories, foot tapping music makes it all the more popular.

Dandiya Dance is performed by both men and women. This dance is basically performed after the ritual of ‘Aarti’, during the Navratri evenings.
