Let's Bhangra! with South Asian Arts

Now that it's Fall, the days may be getting shorter... but that's no reason to hibernate. Shake off the chill by moving your body to a Bhangra beat and make some noise with ArtStarts and South Asian Arts this weekend!

Led by Gurp Sian and Rayman Bhuller, South Asian Arts' interactive performance is based on the hard-hitting beats and energy found in the Northern Indian dance style called Bhangra. Participants will learn Bhangra dance movements and some will be given the opportunity to play the Dhol drum and other accompanying instruments. Through music and dance, students build an understanding and appreciation for art and culture, as well as gain self-confidence and self-discipline in a fun and interactive atmosphere.
