The India Society of Worcester (ISW) returned to the TD Banknorth Garden on Thursday, November 30 to watch the Boston Celtics defeat the Philadelphia Sixers 108-97.
Once again, over 60 members of the community exclusively took part in several game night experiences. Under the guidance and choreography of Jasmine Shah, a group of over 45 dancers performed on the parquet floor during the pre-game activities. Dancing to a medley of Hindi and Bollywood music; the troupe shined in their costumes and looked larger than life as they were broadcast on the game screen above the court. The Celtics are now a perfect 6-0 when the ISW community performs a cultural dance during the pre-game activities.
“We wanted to celebrate Indian culture and the Indian-American community in a big way,” said Ragini Seth, event organizer. “The game is always fun and it’s so wonderful to see new faces every year attending the game and kids performing on behalf of ISW.”
