About Jhumka

Jhumka is the first competitive dance team of its kind at Mount Holyoke College, fusing South Asian classical, pop, film & folk styles with ballet, jazz, hip hop and other western genres. The "jhumka" is a traditional ornament worn by women in the subcontinent, and is a symbol of femininity, maidenhood and grace. The goal of the team is to promote appreciation and understanding of South Asian culture through dance both on- and off-campus.
