Join us for this intoxicating, high-energy, lively celebration! (Yes! YOU will dance!)

When people in the northwestern Indian state of Gujarat want to celebrate, the ecstatic dance tradition known as garba often provides the fuel. An essential component of wedding celebrations and the nine-day fall Hindu festival Navratri, garba is an intoxicating, high-energy folk dance style marked by hand claps and twirls. Danced in a circle (reflecting the cyclical Hindu conception of time), garba steps can be anything from a simple two-step to intricate movements. Garba360 brings this lively celebration to new spaces for all to celebrate through dance. You’ll learn garba, sanedo, and other Gujarati folk dances with the dance instructors, and dance (and just listen) to live music by Saaz and Parth Oza, an acclaimed Gujarati singer from India! Feel free to wear a long, flared skirt, kurta top, or other Indian clothing. All are invited to participate and dance!

The event will be held at 41 Lakefront’s ballroom in Geneva.
