First there was You Got Served, then came shows like Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance? Now, brace yourselves for the most intense dance competition yet: Case's Best Dance CWRU. Organized by the Indian dance organization EKTA, this competition will showcase the skills of various dance groups on campus. The following is a list of competing teams (unaffiliated with EKTA):

Urban Elementz (Hip Hop)

Spartan Dance Team

Nritya (Indian Classical dance)

Satrang Bhangra

Capoeira (Brazilian Martial art form)

Class of 2013 Dance (Bollywood)

The night will also include exhibition acts by Dhamakapella, who fuse Indian and American music, the Nakhre Jehre Maardey Bhangra dance troupe, and nationally competing Case Raas Goondas. Also the "Masters of Ceremony" of the night will be emcee Shiven and emcee Gazy, ready to help put on quite a show.

While this event is a competition, it will also support a great cause. Half of the event's proceeds will go to A Leg to Stand On, an organization that aids in improving the lifestyles of disabled kids living in developing countries. Money raised from the event could possibly be used to help donate prostheses to children who may be unable to dance.

The competing teams have been practicing all year and are ready to entertain and impress judges, including Kinnell Shah and Chris Butler. Tickets for Case's Best Dance CWRU will continue to be on sale for $8 at Nord today from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and CaseCash will be accepted. Tickets will also be on sale at the event, which will take place at the Natural History Museum on University Circle. For all you late-nighters, there will be an after-party so in order to find out where it is, cheer on your favorite dance team at Case's Best Dance CWRU.
