Dandiya Night:

Dandiya Raas is the basically traditional folk dance of Gujarat & Rajasthan, and is associated with scenes of Holi, and lila of Krishna and Radha. Along with Garba, it is the featured dance of Navratri evenings.

The word “Raas” comes from the Sanskrit word “Rasa”. The origins of Raas can be traced to ancient times. Lord Krishna performed Rasa lila”.

The Dandiya Raas dance:

There are several forms of Raas, but “Dandiya Raas”, performed during Navaratri in Gujarat is the most popular form. Other forms of Raas include Dang Lila from Rajasthan where only one large stick is used, and “Rasa lila” from North India. Raas Lila and Dandiya Raas are similar. Some even consider “Garba” as a form of Raas, namely “Raas Garba”. In Dandiya Raas men and women dance in two circles, with sticks in their hands.
