Raas Garba Competition 2012

The Gujarati Society of BC will be participating in the Western Canada Raas Garba Competition this September in Calgary, Alberta.

Over the last twenty years, this event has brought together many individuals in and outside of the community who work together to participate in one of the Society`s greatest events.

In 2010, Vancouver had a clean sweep – taking first in Youth Folk by the VanGopis, Adult Garba by Lady Garba, and Adult Co-Ed Raas by CobRaas. For those of you who weren’t a part of the 2010 troupe, check out the video of the overall winners.

This year, we will be sending three new teams to compete on a different platform in Calgary in hopes of expanding Vancouver’s dancing roster and keeping the first place trophies in Beautiful British Columbia.

Folk Nation, The Chaniya Chokries and Raas City, are all busy preparing for the 2012 Raas Garba competition that’s taking place in Calgary this September.  Take a look at how their rehearsals are going so far…check out some of our recent blog posts.

We have a lot of fundraising events coming up over the summer months – so stay tuned for updates.  Find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to stay connected.

We’re always looking for more of our community members to get involved – We are a volunteer run, not-for-profit group with a lot of different opportunities available for you from Marketing, PR, Finance, Team Relations and Logistics.

Please Contact Rajan Raniga at rajan@gsbc.ca if you want volunteer with us over the summer, or if you would like information on sponsorship and partnership opportunities.
