The Raas Association at the University of Michigan presents Dandia Dhamaka 2014! Dandia Dhamaka is the oldest and largest Raas competition in the country, featuring 8 of the best teams in the country. Raas is a traditional, yet expressive form of Indian folk dance. It is a very active dance involving wooden sticks called dandias. The dancers hit each other's sticks to the beat of the music. It expresses the richness of Indian culture in a colorful and vibrant fashion. The goal of this competition is to promote the beauty of this art form. This year's competition will be held on February 1st, 2014 at the historic Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. Furthermore, all proceeds of the show benefit Prajwala Organization. Prajwala works to end sex trafficking by not only meeting the needs of women and child victims, but also working with like-minded groups to raise awareness of the issue.
