Laasya 2010 - Intercollegiate Classical Dance Competition

Press Release


Date: 02/20/2010
Time: 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Where: MIT, Cambridge, MA
Cost: $7 advance; $10 at door

BU Dheem and MIT Natya invite you to a unique and important event - Laasya, the first and only intercollegiate Indian Classical Dance competition in the northeast! We hope to spread greater cultural awareness, promote the classical arts, and through this effort, raise money for the recent tragedy in Haiti.

Laasya was born out of the realization that though an understanding of Indian culture is growing primarily through the Indian film industry, or ‘Bollywood,’ there is very little awareness about the rich heritage of traditional and classical Indian arts. Our community is small but alive with talent and culture. We invite you to an unforgettable experience of Indian culture through ornate costume, song, and dance.

Performing teams are:

Case Western Reserve University's Nritya
Harvard SASA
Johns Hopkins University's Shakti
Rutgers University's Natya
University of Maryland's Moksha
University of Pennslyvania's Thillana
BU Dheem
MIT Natya

Also, in light of recent events, a portion of the night's proceeds will be donated to the Haiti Relief Fund.

Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door

We hope to see you there! Please invite your friends and family!
