New Jersey: The Federation of Indian Associations (FIA), one of the oldest and the largest organisations of the Indian Diaspora celebrated India's 66th Republic Day in grandeur with its annual show "Dance Pe Chance."
The packed show event at the prestigious State Theatre, in New Brunswick, New Jersey last week was a cultural extravaganza with 625 students from 14 dance schools in three states- New York, New Jersey and Connecticut - vying to prove their mettle.
The event began with the singing of national anthems of the US and India by Sparsh Shah. Omi Vaidya, of the '3 Idiots' movie fame added fun and energy to the show, while noted violin player Daisy Jopling, amazed the crowd with a spectacular performance. Each dance group exhibited an abundance of talent, colourful costumes, innovative choreography and unprecedented pride in being Indians.
New Jersey's Indian-American Deputy Speaker Upendra Chivukula administered the oath of office to FIA's incoming executive committee of 2015.
Uplift Humanity, a non-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of juvenile inmates and orphans in South Asia, was the chosen non-profit partner for the event.
