Legends is the official national dance championship of the fusion dance circuit. Overseen by Desi Dance Network Inc., Legends was founded in 2016 by former dancers and competition organizers from the Desi Dance community. United in our deep sense of care and passion for the circuit, we are dedicated to fostering our community and promoting South Asian performing arts through the relationships we have with our Partner Competitions. We strive to organize a fair, hospitable, and enjoyable season and championship weekend - one that provides a grand venue for our fellow artists to showcase their exception talents. Legends 2023 activities will begin in August 2022 and conclude in April 2023.

Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP) has been a focus across the Desi Dance Network for several years. Far too many collegiate dancers enter the circuit without proper education around sustaining healthy relationships, maintaining sexual health and safety, or participating in safe drinking habits; these factors compound, leaving our community at-risk for sexual violence. We are grateful to have a variety of community organizations who have made strides to tackle this issue by improving awareness around the prevalence of sexual assault in the circuit and providing resources to better support survivors.
