Parent Organization: Art and Performance Groups

Brown Badmaash is Brown University's nationally competitive South Asian fusion dance company. We perform at shows and competitions here at Brown and around the country. Our pieces interweave South Asian and Western dance styles, breaking down the boundaries between existing forms of dance and showcasing the musical power of fusion. bhangra, hiphop, garba/raas, lyrical, bharatanatyam, salsa, Bollywood, breakdancing, and more - you name the dance style, and we have someone working on tying it into our next piece.

Our performances incorporate all sorts of props and special lighting effects, but what sets us apart as Brown Badmaash is our energy and flair. From the moment we start planning a theme for our next performance to the day we carry it out, we never lose our passion about who we are and why we dance. We encourage everyone who shares this passion, regardless of their dance experience or cultural background, to come and try out for our team. And remember, Bad-WHAT? Bad-MAASH!
