Los Angeles, CA
Hosted by UCLA’s official Bollywood and Hindi-Film Dance team, UCLA Nashaa, Jhoomti Shaam has celebrated the South Asian community through expression of art and dance. Now in its 18th year, Jhoomti Shaam will be held on March 7, 2020 in the prestigious Palace Theatre in Los Angeles . For the past 17 years, Jhoomti Shaam has strived to serve as a beacon of cultural awareness for the South Asian community and its allies. Our competition and dancers, no matter what race, color, creed, or class, understand the cultural misrepresentations of the South Asian community pervasive in our world. Jhoomti Shaam encourages the courage and strength displayed by the stories that dance teams from all over the country bring to our stage. These dancers are committed to sharing their spark of hope with the world, and we are more than humbled to be a part of their journey. After all, Jhoomti Shaam is where stars are born.
