The dance team typically holds auditions in September, which are open to all who are interested regardless of any prior dance experience. We are looking to recruit versatile dancers that are excited to gain exposure to a wide variety of dance styles.
On UBC Junoon, dancers shall participate at inter-collegiate Hindi film competitions occurring all over US and Canada. These competition weekends usually begin with a team mixer, providing the unique opportunity to mingle with teams across North America, while engaging in a variety of fun activities and games. During the competition show, highly talented dancers showcase intricate, high-energy and artistic dance routines that incorporate a variety of forms of Indian and Western dance styles in their own unique manner. Dance pieces are structured as a dance drama in which a storyline is established through a short movie prior to the dance. The rest of the story is carried out on stage through props, digital backdrops and dialogues strategically placed between dance sequences. A panel of judges ranks each of the 10 competitive dance teams based on criteria such as coordination, energy, choreography, creativity and dancing ability. The top teams are typically awarded cash prizes and possibly the chance compete among other competition winning teams or dance at elite performances. The night concludes with a huge party to bring competition weekend to an epic end.
Each year, our team takes part in a variety of performances throughout the lower mainland.
These performances include everything from private functions to major shows, ensuring that not a dull moment passes throughout the year.
