Punjabi Giddha Dancer

Giddha (Punjabi: ਗਿੱਧਾ, giddhā) is a popular folk dance of women in Punjab region of India and Pakistan. The dance is often considered derived from the ancient dance known as the ring dance and is just as energetic as Bhangra; at the same time it manages to creatively display feminine grace, elegance and flexibilty. It is a very colourful dance form which is now copied in all regions of the country. Women perform this dance mainly at festive or social occasions.[1]
