Bhangra Dance Workshop

Wednesday 13th March 2024

 

Today, the whole of the school took part in a Bhangra Dance Workshop to help enrich knowledge of different cultures during a fun and educational session.

 

During this lively and joyous lesson, the children learnt how to dance Bhangra with our instructor Senjuti. They also learnt that Bhangra dance originated in the Indian subcontinent, the Punjab. Bhangra was traditionally danced at the time of the spring harvest festival and is an ideal workshop for bringing Diwali to your school.

 

In a typical performance, several dancers execute vigorous kicks, leaps, and bends of the body—often with upraised, thrusting arm or shoulder movements - to the accompaniment of short songs called boliyan and, most significantly, to the beat of a dhol (double-headed drum).

 

We embraced the challenge of learning a new style with enthusiasm and interest
