Wearing pretty ghagras and cholis jazzed up with glitter and shimmer (we hear floral is in this season), doing our hair and makeup. But at the crux of it all, what really makes this season fun is the dance itself. Filled with energy, garba is the type of dance that lifts up your spirits. If you are someone who doesn't know how to ‘the garba' then worry not, we have for you an amazing tutorial by Priya Kumar where she teaches how to do garba and rock the dance floor with simple steps!
