My 5th choice in the series BEST WEDDING DANCES is the 1999 hit DHOLI TARO DHOL BAJE, showcasing a Gujrati wedding. The dance form is GARBA traditionally performed around a centrally lit lamp with the dancers making circular and spiral figures, signifying the Hindu cycle of time revolving from birth, to life, to death and again to rebirth. Formal apparel is an integral part of this dance. The women wear `CHANYA CHOLI', a dress consisting of a choli shirt and chaniya , a flaired skirt like bottom and chunri scarf.. Men wear KAFNI PYJAMAS with a GHAGRA a short round kurta - above the knees and pagadi. two piece formal prom outfits
This dance is viewed by critics as having influenced the later age Muslim sufi dancing in India
Modern Garba is heavily influenced by Dandiya a dance traditionally performed by men.The merger of these two dances has resulted in this high-energy dance performed by . Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai & Ajay Devgan involving flirting, feet greeting and merry making, hallmarks of all Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed songs.
