Dancing Queens: A Celebration of India's Transgender Communities

The Dancing Queens is the country's leading transgender-led dance troupe, headed by Abhina Aher, Urmi Jadhav and Madhuri Sarode. Founded in 2009, the Dancing Queens uses dance to break through boundaries formed by words. The Godrej India Culture Lab hosted them, in a collaborative, multimedia performance curated by our Lab’s very own scholar-in-residence, Jeff Roy.

The performance interweaved dance with short films made by and for the transgender community. Through sensitive choreography, the Dancing Queens embodies, promotes, and fights for the rights of everyone to be who they want to be and love who they want to love.
