About Us



Who We Are

Maryland Minza is a national intercollegiate dance competition created to foster cultural awareness and passion for dancing. Minza was co-founded in 2016 at the University of Maryland by Meghana Annadata, Sonia Arya, and Neha Gupta. The word Minza means “star” in Urdu and was chosen to illuminate the essence of performing.

What is Fusion Dance

South-Asian fusion dance is composed of various styles of dance from different areas internationally. Teams have the freedom to choose which styles they would like to include in their routine, as well as how they would like to represent a chosen theme, generally characterized by a story told through dance.
