Nach Ke Dikha is an intercollegiate Bhangra & Fusion Dance Competition hosted at The College of William & Mary by the South Asian Student Association at the College.
Now in its 7th year, NKD will be hosting its teams from across the country at Kimball Theatre. In both the Bhangra and Fusion categories, the first-place winners are awarded a $1000 Grand Prize and the second-place winners will each receive $500 in prize money.
The South Asian Student Association at the College of William & Mary is a student organization aimed at spreading South Asian culture to both the W&M community and the greater Williamsburg area. We foster South Asian culture through a plethora of events, ranging from live dance showcases to group-wide sporting events.
At SASA, we promote and encourage diversity; the organization is open to all people who wish to participate in an engaging endeavor. We reach out to all members of the community, encouraging unity by celebrating our mutual passion for South Asian culture.
To kick off the NKD festivities, the committee invites all competing teams to a Team Mixer. The banquet will be held in the Martha Wren Briggs Amphitheatre at Lake Matoaka on the William & Mary campus. All invitees are requested to dress in team gear, and a sit-down dinner will be provided. Be ready for a fun night of mingling, games, and dancing with your fellow competitors!
The Nach Ke Dikha Bhangra and Fusion Dance Competition will be held on the evening of March 17, 2018 at the prestigious Kimball Theatre on the William & Mary campus. In honor of our seventh year, eleven teams (5 Bhangra, 6 Fusion) will go head-to-head for the $1000 first-place grand prize and the $500 second-place prize. There will also be 4 exhibition teams performing.
