Dandiya Dance Show by Dancenbeats
27/07/2017: 12:30 PM - 1:20 PM
On Thursday 27th July at 12.30pm, Devonshire Square will be hosting in its atmospheric Western Courtyard an energetic Dandiya Raas dance performance by Dancenbeats, presented by Akademi South Asian Dance.
The show is part of the "Tales of Silk and Music" Indian Dance Festival, organised by the Devonshire Square's Events Team to celebrate the UK-India Year of Culture.
Raas or Dandiya Raas is the traditional folk dance form of Gujiarat and Rajasthan, in Western India. During the dance, men and women dance in two circles, with sticks in their hands, vigorously whirling and moving their feet and arms in a complicated, choreographed manner to the tune of the music with various rhythms.
The sticks (dandiyas) of the dance represent the swords of the goddess Durga, to which the devotional dance is dedicated.
The show is free attendance and registration is not required.
