Heard about the Sword Dance?
In North India, this form of dance began with a story. It displays a mock fight between the Mighty Goddess Durga and Evil Demon Mahishasura. The dandiya sticks represent the swords and people sway back and forth in a circular motion hitting sticks at regular intervals.
Dance All Night Long!
Dandiya is all about dancing the whole night. So ensure that your tresses are in place, dress should look splendid all day long, pin up your dupattas, and perfectly light makeup. After all the hard work, you put into dressing- you surely would not like to look like an exhausted girl with cakes of makeup smudged at various parts of your face. So, focus on minimal makeup and well tucked attires for this Navaratri.
