UCLA Taara is an award-winning, competitive South Asian Classical dance team. We combine various classical dance styles including Bharatanatyam, Odissi, Kuchipudi, and Kathak to create innovative routines that preserve the traditional beauty of classical dance and provide an explorative venue for modern-day storytelling. Founded in Fall 2013, Taara is comprised of a small group of driven UCLA students who are committed to the preservation of the classical arts and its relevance in future generations.
In addition to our competitive team, we perform at various venues throughout UCLA and in the Southern California region. We perform for corporate, non-profit, and personal events (weddings, fundraisers, etc.).
We are always looking out for new performance opportunities! For more information on bookings and performance rates, please contact us! Auditions are held every fall for new dancers interested in the team.
