108 W Central Pkwy, Cincinnati, OH 45202, USA


Midwest Dhamaka is the University of Cincinnati’s premier Bollywood-fusion dance competition. Currently, we are in our ninth year. Each year, we invite eight collegiate Bollywood fusion dance teams from across the nation to compete in Cincinnati. Over five hundred people from the Greater Cincinnati Area attend our show.

Through Midwest Dhamaka, we are able to promote diversity and inclusion on our campus by sharing our love for South Asian culture. Additionally, we pride ourselves in being a platform that creates for dancers a safe space for expression and collaboration. Finally, this year we are ecstatic to work with Elementz, a non-profit group in Cincinnati, that shares our love for the arts and our community. Check out our tabs above to learn more about Midwest Dhamaka and Elementz.
