his is the most popular and colourful dance of the Mizos. Long pair of horizontal bamboo staves are tapped open and close in rhythmic beats by people sitting face to face on the ground, while girls in colourful costumes of Puanchei, Kawrchei, Vakiria and Thihna, dance in and out between the beats of the bamboos. This dance is now performed in almost all festive occasions. The unique style of the Cheraw is a great fascination in and outside Mizoram. Because bamboos are used for the dance. people sometimes call it the Bamboo Dance.
