Who Are We?
Penn Dhamaka is the University of Pennsylvania’s first and only all-male dance troupe. Created in the Fall of 2001 by Milan Vora and eight other students sharing a passion for dance, Penn Dhamaka combines Western and South Asian dance styles, aspiring to present a fresh, unique, and innovative fusion of these cultures. Dhamaka has expanded rapidly in the past decade, culminating in its successes at competitions and showcases at universities along the East Coast and becoming a sensation both on and off campus.
Meet the team
Penn Dhamaka is comprised of 15 undergraduate members from across all classes and disciplines of University of Pennsylvania.
Penn Dhamaka’s main event is an annual two-hour long production held every February displaying a multitude of dance styles from Hip-Hop and Step to Garba, Raas, Filmi, and Bhangra. With the tremendous success of these shows and performances, Penn Dhamaka hopes to reach new and diverse audiences while still maintaining its roots in the University of Pennsylvania and larger Philadelphia community.
