Dance performances and lessons showcasing different states of India (Bhangra, Lavani, Bharat Natyam, Bollywood Fusion and Dandiya styles) really got us in the mood for a round of musical performances and a fashion show displaying popular trends in Asian-Indian wear.

Putting even more stars in our eyes—the ‘Light Up Times Square brought us live performances from some of the biggest names in Bollywood AND breath-taking laser light show. To say we were impressed is certainly an understatement!
