Welcome to our state-of-the-art interactive website.

The Nuv Yug Cultural Organization is a 501-c-3 non-profit tax-exempt organization. A large number of people participate at its flagship event Nuv Yug India Fest each year in Raleigh and Charlotte North Carolina. Nuv Yug is probably the only organization in the world that offers over 2,500 stage performers a premier stage to showcase their talent. Nuv Yug uses an automated system for this mega production to seamlessly allow all stage performers to enjoy the experience! In addition, Nuv Yug has automated most other processes, such as vendor booth reservation, volunteer registration and performer trophy order, to reduce the need for manual processing of information. We hope that you will find it easy to navigate and interact with our website. We greatly appreciate your feedback. Please use the contact page to send us your feedback.

What does Nuv Yug do?

The Nuv Yug Cultural Organization is a non-profit public charity (yes, all contributions are tax deduction eligible) with a mission to promote awareness of Indian Cultural Arts and to provide support to underprivileged or distressed people. You may read our mission on our home page. We provide a platform to local artists and enable them to showcase their talents for the benefit of the general public. Our focus is on K-12 students; and we welcome adults too. We provide participants an opportunity to develop a lifetime of learning various forms of dance and music from the Indian subcontinent. Our performers work hard to prepare for several months to audition. Auditions are held approx. 4-6 weeks before the festival. At auditions, each group is evaluated by a community of judges using our sophisticated online judging system. Selection decisions are announced within a few minutes of each audition performance. Nuv Yug IDOL audition and subsequent round results are announced at the end of each round. Starting in 2018, Charlotte auditions are held via YouTube video only and results are announced by the next day.

We do not provide dance or music classes. However, we work closely with a many dance schools and their teachers.

Utilizing an interactive website, Nuv Yug offers a high quality, efficient and consistent experience for all participants whether they are choreographers, stage performers, vendors, advertisers, sponsors, parents or volunteers. Read more about our website's capabilities in the following answers.

Starting with 2015, Nuv Yug India Fest process and system are also being utilized by Charlotte! A festival based on the same format can be organized at a new location by local community members. Our interactive website can be adapted to specific needs of any community. If you are interested in participating in this endeavor, please contact us. A team member will get in touch with you.

How to register a dance or music performance?

Please note that Nuv Yug India Fest only provides a platform to those who wish to perform at Nuv Yug India Fest. We do not teach dance or music. If you are interested in performing at Nuv Yug India Fest but cannot to find a group that is able to accept you, we encourage you to start your own group.

A fully automated workflow system is used to manage your stage performance registration. Please read guidelines and steps to register your stage item before you start your registration process. To register, please sign in to your personal Dashboard and click on the I would like to submit a Stage Performance link.

Choreographers/Teachers: please note that if your group includes young (minor) performers, you need to ask their parents/guardians to register before their children can be registered. When registering a minor, a parent's Nuv Yug ID is required. In other words, for minor performers, first a parent needs to create his or her own Nuv Yug ID, and then the parent should create a Nuv Yug ID for the child. Then only the parent should sign a waiver. Our automated system keeps track of parent child relationships and applies waiver requirements only to parents.

We permit performers to participate in more than one dance or music item. We make every effort to schedule different performances by the same performer with sufficient gap between them. Therefore, it is very important that a performer uses the same Nuv Yug ID in all performance registrations. This process is completely automated. Therefore, we are not able to enterain requests to change schedule.

This website supports Nuv Yug India Fest at multiple locations. Please make sure you select your Nuv Yug India Fest location correctly before registering your dance or music performance. If you would like to register performances at multiple locations, simply change your location from the Home page and access your Dashboard for that specific location of Nuv Yug India Fest.

How to sign a waiver?

All performers, vendors, volunteers, and sponsors need to provide an electronically signed waiver in order to participate in Nuv Yug India Fest. You will need to have a Nuv Yug ID before you can sign a waiver. If you don't have one, please get it here.

Our process requires that parents or guardians of minor participants register for a Nuv Yug ID for themselves first. Then they can register their minor child(ren).

You may sign the waiver by signing into your personal Dashboard. Please sign your waiver only after you have obtained a Nuv Yug ID for all your children. A correctly signed waiver will show the names of all children you are supposed to sign the waiver for. Please verify that your waiver shows you the names of all your children. If you register another minor performer after you have signed your waiver, you will need to sign the waiver again. If you have pending waivers, your Dashboard will show the number of pending waivers next to the Waivers link on your Dashboard.

Please note that minor performers cannot login or sign a waiver. An adult registered as their parent will need to sign it.

Remember a waiver can be signed only electronically. There are no paper forms to sign.
