ELEGANZA is one of the largest student events at Harvard University, with a sold-out audience of 2000 people attending the most recent show in April 2013. The event's mission is focused on diversity and charity, celebrating different cultures, backgrounds, and forms of expression. All profits from the show go to benefit local Boston charity Teen Empowerment, which seeks to connect teens with tangible ways they can contribute to and discuss issues in their communities. Founded 18 years ago under the umbrella organization Harvard BlackC.A.S.T., ELEGANZA is a fashion show that combines couture style with dynamic music and movement. It's an adrenaline rush of fashion, fierce choreography, and entertainment.
