Music & Dance transcend sexuality, gender, language, nationality & other labels. After getting groovy with Bollywood Disco tunes in May, Jai Ho! Dance Party is back with a new theme to celebrate and welcome everyone to the dance floor.

“Kuch Kuch Hota Gay” is a play-on-words based off of the hit Bollywood song, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.” This June as pride parades march across the United States, let’s stand for equal rights and connect on the dance floor to celebrate our unity in diversity! A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Human Rights Campaign.

MYNX:

LYNX:

No stranger to the stage, Lynx began dancing as a child but got her start performing drag just last Summer. Out of drag, you may recognize her as the lead of the Jai Ho! Dance Troupe. This party is a fusion of her passions and nothing less than a dream come true.

ROBERT DYNAMITE:

Has an extreme penchant for lip-syncing, particularly to golden age Bollywood songs. His taste in music confines his performances to his bedroom for the most part, where he bombards Instagram with lip-sync videos under the name gratuitous_sax.
