Official Burgh in the Burgh 8 Placings!


1 - SMD
2 - FCB
3 - UNC Bhangra Elite

Not sure how MOB didn't place. They had the best set of the night

P.S. - It's sad that CMU does exhibition, but is cleaner and executes better than half the team's competing


About damn time, well deserved ladies. Can't wait for you to keep tearin the circuit up!

What a weekend.

Reeda and SMD - congratulations to all of you on 1st! I genuinely hope your success continues on throughout the year. Shoutout to CMU alum Poorvi for tearing up that stage.

My homies at FCB - you know we always got your back and y'all ripped it as usual. SiddyP - you said that I had better lose my voice yelling during your set. Well, it happened. First Class Forever.

Yeshel, Pooja and UNC - as I mentioned earlier, it's great to see UNC returning to their old ways. I can't wait to watch your set. And it was great to see you as always.

Can't tell you how much that shoutout means to us, man. We have always treated BIB like a competition, and it's great to have our work recognized.

Also - if anyone has a video of CMU, please send it over to "" and don't share it around just yet. We'll be posting publicly next month.


Extremely well run competition in almost every aspect, and dancing in that venue is breathtaking every time.

Congrats to SMD on winning the competition - I wish I had the chance to see your set live! Special shout-out to fellow Duke alum Laamia for killing it as always.

UNC - great to see yall put it together this year. Supremely clean set, and an incredible display of stage presence, especially given the number of new/first time dancers on this stage. Rani, Radhika, Yeshal, Pooja - yall have done an incredible job with this team - can't wait to see what you bring next semester.

MOB - i think yall got robbed. In my opinion, this was one of the best sets of the night. Haven't seen a cleaner performance in several years, and execution was on point. Right after your performance ended, each and every one of our dancers said, "This is 1st place" (no disrespect to SMD - our team didn't get a chance to see SMD live cause they were right after us, so we were judging based on the other teams). Hold your heads high after that one, and keep that up moving forward.

Columbia - By far, most entertaining performance of the night for me. I have never seen a team have more fun dancing on stage. Yall have some work to do on your form and style, but keep that energy and that fire when you're on stage. Everyone on GMU was going crazy for you because yall represent exactly why we all dance. Especially taller guy in glasses and the guy who was front right in last song.

Despite countless injuries to our team, I'm extremely proud of GMU for our performance - I had an awesome time. Special shout-out to Jasmeen & Jay for dealing with our crap throughout practices, and to Yasser Ansari, who danced despite dislocating his knee two minutes before walking onto stage...

UMD Bhangra had an awesome weekend at burgh! We were excited to share the stage with so many great teams.
CONGRATS to SMD, FCB, and UNC for their placings you guys really deserved it.

It was with this competition that i realized how much more we have to bring to a competition, none the less we had an amazing time and had no regrets. If anyone has specific comments about our set please PM me.

Huge shout out to FCB and SMD for cheering like no other while watching every set and encouraging every dancer, it was really awesome to have that in the crowd.

and again congrats to SMD, you girls finally got what you deserve
