Bhavai is a type of Folk Dance which is popular in the Gujarat and Rajasthan states of India. Male and Female artists perform the Bhavai Dance. This genre of dance was traditionally performed by the female performers of the Jat, Bhil, Raigar, Meena, Kumhar and Kalbelia communities of Rajasthan.
The dancers balance a number of earthen pots or brass/metal pitchers while dancing. They do a quick and light movement and a rapid whirling about of their body. They sway the soles of their feet perched on top of a glass bottle or on the edge of a sword on the rim of a brass/metal plate (thali) during the dance.
The veiled women dancers balances up to 22 brass/metal pitchers on their head. Male dancers provide accompaniment by singing melodious songs and playing different musical instruments. The instruments commonly used are Pakhawaj, Dholak, Jhanjhar, Sarangi and Harmonium.
