The classical Garba Dance is mainly performed in reverence of Devi Amba, the portrayal of Goddess Durga. So the festive dance is staged during the nine nights of the Holy Navaratri in the month of September or October. The state of Gujarat takes the performance of Garba Dance very seriously. It has become the part of the people. It is taken up by the mass as an important ritual of the Navaratri celebrations. The dance form is a group dance performed with a rhythmic chorus. The dance is done by both men and women folks. The dress of Garba Dance is, in particular, very unique. The men wear a kurti which remains tight in the thoracic region and then spread out loosely like a skirt. Men wear dhoti with this kurti. Women wear duppatta, kamiz, choli and ghagra. All these clothes are very bright and are weaved with traditional Gujarati embroideries. The Garba Dance is performed with religious song recitals and the main step motions are concentric and circular. The rhythmic clap beats makes the whole performance a mesmerizing one.
