Navarasa is the premiere intercollegiate Indian Classical dance competition in North Carolina hosted at North Carolina State University. In Indian Classical dance theory, ‘Navarasa’ refers to the nine dominant emotional themes of a dance piece and is the primary feeling evoked in viewers of said dance. We are tremendously honored to be hosting college students from across the nation who will come together to showcase and celebrate their Indian classical dance heritage all while raising money for charity. Navarasa will be donating 100% of its profits to CRY!
