Rockettes’ Pick for Dancer of the Week: Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Perform in Pre-Wedding Sangeet Dance
Who: Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas (and their families!)
Why we chose them: The 5-day wedding celebration between former teen heartthrob Nick Jonas and “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra in the bride’s native India has been burning up the Internet. Our favorite part of the star-studded festivities? The Sangeet where wedding guests were given the chance to show off their dancing skills!
The Sangeet is a traditional celebration between two families, typically held the night before a wedding. The party consists of a dance competition between the bride and groom’s families to tell the story of how the couple first met, as well as plenty of food, drink and henna.
Fellow Jonas brother Joe was a soloist in the Sangeet, and “Game of Thrones” star and future sister-in-law Sophie Turner danced alongside her fellow bridesmaids as well. But it looks like Nick and Priyanka both brought their best moves to the party.
“It all began as a fierce song and dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love.” Priyanka shared in her caption of the Sangeet video posted on Instagram.
Fun fact: Another Jonas wedding isn’t too far away: Joe and fiancee Sophie Turner announced that they will be tying the knot in France next summer.
