Dandia or Raas / Garba, is a traditional dance popular in Western India. This celebration occurs during the fallfestival of Navratri (Nav-raa-tree). Dandiya is a dance with short sticks and an ever-changing partner, that promotes great calorie burn! Many folks have tried Dandiya and really enjoyed it.
