Jai Ho! Dance Party

Come teleport to the dream city, Mumbai, home to the alluring Bollywood film industry at the Jai Ho! Dance Party.

Third Saturdays in Seattle & last Saturdays in Portland, with a new flavor every month, Jai Ho! (victory to you) is a monthly dance party featuring authentic and crossover Indian Dance Music (Bollywood & Bhangra).

Dance lessons, dance performances and LIVE singing – make Jai Ho! an experience where anyone and everyone joins the fun and dances, regardless of age, culture or nationality.

Jai Ho! is viewed by many as an experience beyond a dance party, the charismatic entertainer Prashant performs for the audience and even leads the crowd in dance routines, all of this while he is spinning electronic Indian dance music seamlessly.

It's as spectacular as a Bollywood Film itself.
