Duke Lasya is the only Indian classical dance team on Duke’s campus. We strive to promote Indian culture through the practice of traditional and disciplined Indian dance forms like Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi, Odissi, and Kathak. Our team aims to highlight our dancers’ unique ability to merge our traditional style with modern and fusion music in order to further captivate and connect to the student audience and the Duke community. We showcase this expressive artform at a variety of on and off campus cultural performances (including Awaaz). In addition, we compete in several intercollegiate competitions in an effort to make Lasya one of the nations’s elite classical Indian dance teams.
