Dandiya is a popular folk dance of Rajasthan. Dressed in colorful costumes the performers play skillfully with big sticks in their hands. Dandiya dance is accompanied by the musical instrument called the Meddale played by the drummer in the centre. The Bhil tribal of Rajasthan perform a variety of dances. All these folk dances correspond to the agricultural cycle. The Ghumer dance Raika and Jhoria are some examples of this type of dance. The Gher dance is a favorite and popular dance of the Mina tribe who are similar to the Bhils while Valar is typical dance of the Garasias of Rajasthan.

Raas or Dandiya Raas is the traditional folk dance form of Vrindavan India where it is performed depicting scenes of Holi and lila of Krishna and Radha. Along with Garba it is the featured dance of Navratri evenings in Western India. During Navratri festival in most of the cities of Gujarat and in Mumbai people gather and perform Garba dance.
