Locals celebrate Indian culture at Youthsava

Submitted By Neha Kothari

The most popular annual dance competition is just around the corner. On Saturday, April 27 the India Community Center will host the annual Youthsava.

This annual competition is named for the Sanskrit word Uthsava, meaning celebration, and youth, and helps participating Indo-American kids and teens develop a strong sense of pride in Indian heritage and culture. Youthsava draws over 1,500 spectators who come to watch the 500-plus participants and encourages youth to show off their teamwork skills and creative abilities by planning and performing a dance routine to Indian folk and Bollywood music. The event gathers the greater Indo-American community in support of the youth dancers, who receive awards for the top performances in each category.

The competition encourages youth to connect directly with Indian culture by wearing colorful costumes and dancing to carefully chosen music, representing specific regions of India.

For more information, call (408) 934-1130 or visit www.IndiaCC.org.
