The members of Tar Heel Raas, an Indian dance organization at UNC-Chapel Hill, rehearse at Rams Head Recreation Center on Monday, Feb. 17, 2020.

UNC's vibrant culture of Indian dance comes to life in spring competition season

As competition season reaches its height, UNC's Indian dance teams are practicing more than ever. The Daily Tar Heel watched rehearsals and interviewed representatives from four of the major Indian dance teams — Tar Heel Raas, UNC Chalkaa, Ek Taal and Bhangra. Each team has a unique focus and style, but all share a commitment to their craft, practicing up to 12 hours a week. With each performance and each rehearsal, these students get to experience their culture and express their identity.

Column: Those who can't teach, do

"Although some individuals act as teaching assistants for courses or mentor undergraduates during rotations and thesis work, doctoral programs very rarely require curriculum on how to prepare for and teach a lecture course, how to effectively mentor trainees or even how to manage grant money outside of individual projects and among larger groups."
