FOGANA is an acronym for The Federation of Gujarati Associations of North America, which was founded in 1980. The aim is to bring all the Gujarati people living in North America closer together by promoting a common platform to sustain and perpetuate the cultural heritage of Gujarat, India.
Folk dancing is one of the integral parts of any celebration in the Gujarati culture. In order to promote this culture and keep it alive in the younger generations, FOGANA initiated folk dance competitions in various regions.
