The DcWaleDesi team is thrilled to announce the launch of DesiGrooves, a monthly dance workshop for all ages and levels.

For our first monthly meet-up, our theme will be BollyHop and our instructors will be Monica Ahuja and Rashi Thapar.

You may know Monica Ahuja as the Founder of DcWaleDesi, but she’s a whole lot more than that! Fashion is her passion and dance is her life. She is an Indian-trained Bharatnatyam dancer, who after moving to the US has dabbled in hip-hop and freestyle dancing.

Rashi Thapar is a dancer and aspiring actress. She has danced almost her entire life and spent 5 years as a member of Maryland Dhoom, a fusion dance team. She loves to try different styles of dance.

Admission: $20 for 1.5 hours of group dance instruction.

Please note that we only have the capacity of up to 45-50 dance enthusiasts for this edition of DESIGROOVES.

There will be an opportunity to network and connect with like-minded South Asians and other attendees over light snacks and refreshments following the dance class.

One lucky attendee will be entered to win a $25 gift card, usable at any DC-area location of Founding Farmers or Farmers Fishers Bakers or Farmers & Distillers.
