Garba Dance and Raas Dance Forms
Garba Dance is a traditional Indian folk dance with origins dating back 5000 years.
Dancers move in a circulation formation using intricate feet movements whilst their hands flow round their bodies with finger clicking and clapping.
The dance starts at a slow pace and speeds up as the rythmn of the accompanying Garba music increases.
This is an elegant, energetic, fun exercise which involves individual and group coordination.
Dancers wear traditional colourful costumes.

In another form of this dance (called Raas Dance), the dancers still form a circular formation, but work in pairs with their hands engaged in a stick dance.
The 5 cycle stick formation circulates to the beat of the drum and music.
