Raas RoyaltyPrint This
Raas Royalty has become one of the largest cultural shows in and around the state of Indiana. Held at IU Auditorium, the event creates an opportunity to get a taste of the vast tradition of South Asia.
Eight teams from across the nation travel and compete in a type of Indian dance called Raas Garba. Originally a more traditional form of dance, it has evolved and become part of a competitive dance circuit. Collegiate teams compete for a chance to represent their schools in May at the National Championship, Raas All-Stars, in Dallas, Texas.
Along with putting on such a colorful display of Indian culture, the event raises money for its partnering organization, Timmy Global Health. The event is free to attend and is simply spectacular with its vibrant costumes, lively music, and energetic performances! Being one of the only 16 official Raas competitions in the country, this is not something you want to miss!
