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.
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.
Maryland Minza will be held at the University of Maryland, College Park. Here are the directions on Google Maps. We look forward to seeing you there! Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
