Raas All-Stars (RAS) began as a humble vision to celebrate the raas/garba tradition and in the past 12 years since it began, RAS has quickly become one of the largest collegiate dance organizations and created the ultimate stage for the nation’s most elite garba/raas teams. Each year, we welcome the top 8 teams from competitions throughout the country to compete on the RAS stage to claim the title of National Champions. This year, Raas All-Stars will be held at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center in Washington D.C. on April 11th, 2020.
Our collective goal is to be able to provide a platform for teams to showcase their passion for dance. We hope to spread South Asian culture, while encouraging a foundation of perseverance, artistic expression and diversity. Whether it be dancing your heart out on stage or working hard behind the scenes to put on an amazing performance, we aim to unite all those who share a passion for the art form. We strive to foster a supportive circuit where everyone can feel comfortable about expressing who they are and what they love.
