Beda (Pot) Raas is a popular folk dance of Gujarat, India. It is a type of Dandiya Raas, a traditional Gujarati dance performed with sticks. Beda Raas is characterized by its high energy, vibrant colors, and fast-paced rhythm.

The dance is typically performed during the Navratri festival, a nine-day Hindu festival that celebrates the nine forms of the goddess Durga. However, Beda Raas can also be performed at other times of the year, such as weddings and other social gatherings.

Beda Raas is performed by both men and women of all ages. The dancers wear traditional Gujarati costumes, which are typically brightly colored and embellished with mirrors and sequins. The men wear dhotis (traditional Indian garments) and kurtas (long shirts), while the women wear ghagras (long skirts) and cholis (crop tops).

Beda Raas is a very energetic dance, and the dancers often move in complex patterns. The dance is also very challenging, and it requires a lot of skill and coordination. However, Beda Raas is also a very fun and enjoyable dance, and it is a great way to celebrate Gujarati culture and heritage.
