Lashkara is an intercollegiate competitive dance group at UC Davis that strongly values leadership, responsibility, and excellence both academically and on stage. Lashkara was started six years ago, with the goals of creating lasting friendships, improving the dance skills of each team member, and maintaining a strong sense of South Asian pride on campus.
Our mission is to dazzle and inspire others to take the stage and compete in the intercollegiate circuit, and to showcase our versatility and uniqueness in our choreography.
Our performances incorporate jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, and Indian classical dance styles alongside energetic Bollywood choreography and captivating storylines. We aim to fuse together the finest of classical and modern dance forms to bring the best of Bollywood to all audiences.
As a member of Lashkara, our members grow as dancers, network with fellow dancers nationally and internationally, and perform in front of thousands of people while doing what they love the most.
