Glee’s Got Nothing on “Bollywood Berkeley 2011”

Over 2,000 fans crowded into sold-out Zellerbach Hall on Saturday night for the largest intercollegiate Bollywood dance competition in the U.S. — eight teams dressed in sparkly costumes competing for more than $4,000 in prizes.

People not familiar with Bollywood might be surprised by the turnout. But “Bollywood Berkeley” is just one of many Indian dance competitions now sweeping the United States, from “The South Asian Showdown” in Boston to “Bollywood America” in San Diego.
