Holi, the festival of colors, was celebrated by India Club Georgia Tech on April 2 at their annual Holi Show. Drawing hundreds of audience members, the show featured numerous performances from members of the Tech and Atlanta community. The theme was rangeela, which means colorful in Hindi. 

The performances used a wide range of traditional and modern styles, including bollywood, kathak, Bharatanatyam, bhangra, garba, hip-hop and fusion. 

For many perfomers, the Holi Show is their last performance of the year, and for seniors on the dance teams, this performance is the last of their college dance career. Thus, the show was a joyful and emotional celebration of these individuals, who have dedicated so much time to sharing their culture with the Tech community and on a national level. 

India Club organizes the event, complete with comedic sketches from hosts and speeches from their board members. Participating organizations in the show included GT Pulse, GT Ramblin’ Raas, Taal Tadka, GT Qurbani, ATL Tanishq and many others.
