What we're about

This group and these parties are for ANYONE who likes to make friends, socialize and dance Bollywood-Bhangra while doing so.

### ║Guidelines @ every JAI HO!║

Creating a safe & celebratory space is our number one priority at every event we host.
And we would love for you to be an accomplice of mine by greeting & treating everyone like you would like to be treated. With equality, mutual respect, and a big smile.
We know this does not apply to you because you are awesome but for the other people to whom it may be relevant, we have zero tolerance for bigotry, racist remarks, and generally reckless behavior including but not limited to fighting, inappropriate touch, etc.
Anyone found engaging in such behavior will be thrown out at once & may never be able to attend our dance parties again.
If you see something, say something by bringing it to the attention of the venue staff or me directly.

### ║Jai Ho! in Seattle║

Prashant moved to the US from India in 2003 for graduate school at Cornell University and started DJing, teaching dance + hosting events after quitting a full-time job at Intel back in 2009.
Since then, he has traveled regularly across the west coast, Denver, and New Orleans putting on MAD AWESOME dance parties creating and fostering communities centered around celebrating world music & dance with a focus on South Asian culture.
We started Bollywood nights in Seattle back in 2010. From 2011-2013 we held a monthly party at the iconic Chop Suey nightclub in Capitol Hill. Since 2014, we have been hosting a popping regular party at Nectar Lounge in the Fremont neighborhood.

### ║Land Acknowledgement ║

We at Bollywood Dreams seek to practice deep regard and respect for the Indigenous Peoples on whose lands we have the opportunity to live, work, and play.
We acknowledge that Jai Ho! Dance Party in Seattle takes place at the unceded ancestral lands of The Duwamish People.

### ║Hosting A Private Event? ║

When not hosting open to public dance nights, we love bringing the vibe to weddings, private, and corporate events. Contact us through our website http://dreamsperfected.com if you want to work with us to throw a memorable shindig!
