Penn State Organization ‘Infusion’ to Hold National Dance Competition In Eisenhower Auditorium

Infusion will hold its fourth annual Fusion/Hindi Film dance competition March 19 in Eisenhower Auditorium. Students from all over the country will travel to University Park to participate in one of the biggest dance competitions of the year. Although several teams will apply, only the top 9 will battle it out for the title come March. The winner of this event will not only receive a $2,000 cash prize but also win points toward being a bid to the Bollywood America 2016 competition in Cleveland, Ohio, and the second place team will receive $1,000.

Infusion focuses on Filmi-fusion dance style. This unique style of dance incorporates themes from Bollywood Films and music, and then combines them with western style dance. Last year the event featured special guest filmi-fusion dancer and Miss America 2014 Nina Davuluri.

Although it will be hard to follow the success of last year’s competition, the “Infusion 2016” committee members have been prepping year-long for this intercollegiate competition. The goal of “Infusion” is to spread South Asian culture throughout Penn State, State College, and surrounding communities. Tickets and more information about this event can be found on Infusion’s website. 

Update: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the amount of the first place award. It is $3,000 total, not just $3,000 for the winner.
