Music and Dance unites us all - regardless of language, race, communication abilities, so much more.... So, we decided to create this event to show our love and support to our friends on the Autism Spectrum who are part of PRAGNYA, working with Pragnya's academic mentoring and social immersion programs.

Children on the Autism spectrum need our love, our support, our understanding and compassion, NOT sympathy or Apathy. As ALLIES of PRAGNYA, we are putting up this event, as teens ourselves, to do something we all love to do - DANCE !!!!! and what can be better than Bollywood Dance!!!

Sign up for this dance competition if you love dancing, this will be on April 27, 2019. The winning team and individuals get the title and aside from a host of media opportunities throughout the year to be featured on the most popular Radio Dehotties.


GROUPS and SOLOISTS welcome - Dance is the only criteria. If you can show your versatility by blending fusion, classical and bollywood into your video or performance - more power to you !!!!
