Hindu Society performed at the Battle of Bollywood dance competition at Hammersmith Apollo, London in March.

A group of eighteen students made up the energetic team, who battled it out against 23 other Universities at the competition last month, following three months of rehearsals.

The team wait with bated breath as they hear from the judges

The society are calling for students to ‘like’ their performance video on the Battle of Bollywood competition Facebook page before the 21 April, as they compete to receive the most ‘likes’ to gain an automatic place at the 2018 finals.

Team Captain and former Hindu Society Vice-President, Karishma Patel comments, “I don’t think I’ve met a group of people as willing to learn as my team. At first, some of them were hesitant to perform, because it was something they’d never done before. Some of them didn’t see themselves as dancers. But with a bit (sometimes a lot) of persuading they all came together. The weeks leading up to the show were probably some of the most hectic, stressful yet fun weeks before any show we’ve done. We really pulled together as a team and they worked so hard to perfect the routines. On the day, we didn’t qualify for the final round, which is a shame because they deserved a place. But they put 110% into the performance and, as their captain, I could not be prouder! Now is our second chance to take our place in the final round of next year, so fingers crossed we win!”

Hindu Society President for the next academic year, Divyansh Dixit, adds, “We’d really appreciate it if students could support us!”.
