Irvington Indopak Hosted Fifth Annual Dil Se Show
The fifth annual “Dil Se” show hosted by Irvington High School on January 11, 2014 featured several student-run Bollywood teams around the Bay Area. This year, the proceeds from the show are donated in aid to Islamic Relief USA and Project RISHI, a South Indian charity.
Dil Se is comprised of two shows–the first from 2:00-4:00 P.M, and the night show from 7:00-9:00 P.M. Tickets were available either online, from certain performers or at the door.
“The night show was amazing, I saw a lot of talented people on stage,” American High School graduate Nicole Prucha said. “There was so much cheering I could barely hear the music!”
Dil Se’s second show had a full house; the surplus attendees sat on the floor, or stood either in the auditorium or at the doorway.
“The show had an intermission around halfway, but I had a hard time getting back to my seat afterwards because it was overcrowded,” senior Belle Lee said.
A range of high school teams were performers on the show, such as Monta Vista from Cupertino and Mitty from San Jose.
“I recognized so many people on stage because they’re all from local schools,” sophomore Nina Krishnan said. It was really awesome seeing those familiar faces before and after the show.”
