Couple dandiya dance first appeared in the Gujarat state in India. It involves dancing with tiny, ornamented sticks, or dandiyas, and is generally done during the Navratri festival. With your arms on your sides, face your partner. Raise the dandiyas to shoulder height while holding one in each hand. Begin to move to the beat of the music by circling your companion in a circle while taking short steps. Couple dandiya dance includes tapping of dandiyas first with right hand and then with left.
