JAI HO! DANCE TROUPE
ELLIOT ON DHOL
On January 22, 2010, like-minded friends founded Jai Ho! Dance Party in Portland to share their love for all things Bollywood & over the years it has become the only ethnic dance party that regularly spans across the United States.
In the last 8 years, at 233 shows, Jai Ho! has featured over 100 local, national & International artists.
We couldn’t have made it this far without your support Seattle family. It’s because of YOU that we were able to bring India’s festive elements such as Holi Colors, Diwali Lights & Dandiya Sticks to the American nightlife infusing it with our core values of inclusivity, community and sharing positive vibes.
Seattle chapter: We’ve had a blast with you ever since our first show at Little Red Theater in October 2010 and we’d love to celebrate with you Seattle!
