Help us support our community during this time of need.
Who We Are
Desi Dance Network (DDN) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing together South Asian artists from around the nation. Through the intersection of performances, arts, education, and civic engagement, DDN seeks to empower South Asian artists by creating and developing safe spaces for artistic and creative growth, while building an empowering community within the collegiate and high school dance circuits.
DDN is proud to host the annual Legends Bollywood Dance Championship where the top 9 to 12 teams will be chosen to compete at nationals, bringing together over 300 artists! As well DDN hosts the Desi Dance Convention for aspiring and enthusiastic dancers to spend a weekend attending workshops hosted by professionals in the industry.
Why We Need You
Unfortunately, the Legends Bollywood Dance Championship which was scheduled to be held on April 11, 2020, at the Harris Theater in Chicago, IL had to be cancelled due to COVID-19. This is our largest annual event and helps finance all the other initiatives that benefit our community. We appreciate all the support you can give to see our community continue on after this year.
