I'm a bridesmaid at a traditional Indian wedding. Do I have to dance?

Hi guys! I'm a bridesmaid for my friend's wedding. Her family is from India and so is her future husband.
I was told some weeks ago that all the bridesmaids are expected to dance for all the guests. My friend gave us the songs, so we started practicing several Indian dances via videocall, which was quite funny haha
Until now, the idea of performing Indian dances in front of a mostly Indian crowd felt a little weird, but still ok. But now, we got into the details and my friend told us we will all be wearing loose fitting colourful pants and bare feet during the dance.
It feels weird for me to dance barefoot in front of all the guests, so I wanted to ask, is it common that bridesmaids have to dance for the guests at Indian weddings? And that they have to be barefoot while dancing?
