Bollywood is the largest film producer in India and one of the largest centers of film production in the world. Known for their colorful costumes and musical storylines, their films have transcended language barriers and grown in popularity.
The most memorable feature about most Bollywood films is their dance numbers. Cascading dresses decorated in shimmering sequins and flowing satin, float around a room as pounding rythms help the dancers keep up syncopated dance moves. Washington DC will get a chance to view some of the region’s best of these dancers as they compete against each other in the Elite 8 Naach Invitational 2012.
Eight of the best Bollywood dance teams will share the stage and dance against each other to prove that they are the creme de la creme. Each team has been selected as the best of the best in their region and the competition is by invitation only. The Elite 8 Naatch Invitational 2012 will be held at the Lincoln Theater on April 28, 2012 at 6:00 p.m.
