Navratri: dancing to Celebrate the Goddess in Every Girl
September 30, 2016
The celebration of Navratri at the University of Texas at Austin culminates in performing traditional dances such as garba, raas, and bhangra. Garba is a graceful dance in which people dance in a circle, often around a centerpiece of flowers and lamps. Dandiya raas is a fast-paced dance in which dancers with colorfully decorated sticks (dandiya) strike the sticks of the person in front of them. Bhangra is a more modern form of dance, in which everyone dances with their hands in the air.
Come celebrate Navratri free with Hindu Students Association! There will be a fantastic DJ, great music, tasty food, and free t-shirts! Please bring your UT ID if you want to use our dandiya sticks!
