The South Asian Showdown, sponsored by South Asian Nation, looks to be one spectacular mega-event, complete with a huge party afterwards. I absolutely love Bhangra or Punjabi music and have always wanted to see a team dance competition with choreography set to this popular and energetic style. Well now, here’s my chance and yours. In addition to Punjabi music, competetors will also be dancing to three other genres incuding Fusion, Gerba-Raas, and Hindi-Film. Only one winner over-all, however, will be crowned champion in this one-of-a-kind, multi-genre South Asian contemporary dance competition.  and…If your in the mood for a little celebration afterwards, you’ll definitely want to attend the after party in the hotel ballroom, which event organizers promise will be conducted in true ethnic spirit. Culturally speaking, that should keep things pretty interesting and entertaining.  

If you want to get a general idea as to what this type of event is all about, check out this video!  To meet the competetors and get a little underestanding of the criteria on which they will be judged, visit the web site where you can also subscribe South Asian Nation’s newsletter and be informed of future events  taking place in the area.
