Giddha is a lively folk-dance of the women in Punjab
. It is mainly performed during the gay occasions, especially during marriages. The rhythm of the dance is put up by the clapping of the hands.
Giddha is generally played in a circle in open courtyards. During the performance, one of the performers sings a song called 'bolis'. Giddha is inclusive of simple steps and dancers form a circle while performance. An integral part of this dance is mimicry. One of the performers plays the role of an aged bridegroom and another as a young bride. The various phases of a Punjabi woman are depicted through this play. Dholki or drum is the major musical instrument used in this dance.
The performers wear choli and ghagra or ordinary Punjabi Salwar-Kamiz, rich in color and design. Ornaments such as suggi-phul (worn on head), pazaibs (anklets), haar-hamela, (gem-studded golden necklace), baazu-band (worn around upper-arm) and raani-haar (a long necklace made of solid gold) are also worn.
