The event was titled "Dance with ME and Ronnie D." Daniels had seen a rehearsal of Masti's Diwali performance in the fall and approached a member of the group about learning a Bollywood dance. The high-energy number opened with Daniels silhouetted against a red backdrop, lasted about a minute and a half, and finished to hearty cheers from the crowd of more than 500 at Shriver Hall. Masti performed eight dance numbers (including the routine with Daniels) at the event, with styles ranging from Indian Bollywood, bhangra, and garba to American hip-hop and partner dancing. The Eclectics performed seven times, with styles that included hip-hop, contemporary, and lyrical. Then the groups teamed up for a finale.
