Bhangra Dancing with Gurdeep Pandher
Gurdeep’s classes are an entertaining introduction to Bhangra dance and culture, as well as a great fitness activity. During the workshop, Gurdeep teaches the Bhangra moves one-by-one and breaks down the movements into several smaller pieces in order to aid the learning process. When all the moves are well-practiced, everybody joins together to dance to uplifting Bhangra music. Bhangra is a traditional Punjabi dance that was developed by Sikh farmers in Punjab, a region located in South Asia near Kashmir. The movements require a high energy level, therefore the Bhangra is an intense workout, in addition to a cultural learning opportunity.
