Best you can get outside of here.

While you were doing something inevitably less productive this weekend, Columbia’s own Bollywood fusion dance squad, Dhoom, was competing alongside eleven similar groups at the alliterative and aptly named South Asian Showdown in Boston. Not only were they competing, they were succeeding! The team placed second in the Fusion/Hindi Film category, tying a group of coreless heathens from Brown and being bested only by Broadstreet Baadshahz of Philadelphia, the eventual winners of the competition.

This result represents tremendous progress for Dhoom, which, according to men’s captain Taylor Sanders, CC’13, was not even accepted to the Boston competition last year. Bwog extends its heartiest congratulations to all!
