The annual Nachte Raho dance competition will be held Saturday in the IMU Main Lounge. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., when DJ Aladdin will spin for a pre-show show. The competition will begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 for the first 100 University of Iowa students, $12 general admission.

For the last eight years, the competition has garnered nationwide attention and has been successfully labeled as the Midwest’s biggest intercollegiate dance competition.

Each dance team is selected to compete its dance routine for a shot at first place and the grand prize money of $5,500. The performances can be eight to 10 minutes in length and traditionally cover well-known Indian dances such as Gabra-Raas, Bhangra, and Bollywood Fusion.
