Session 2: Gidda (punjabi folk dance for women) by Anamika

Giddha is a popular folk dance of women in Punjab region of India and Pakistan. The dance is often considered derived from the ancient dance known as the ring dance and is just as energetic as bhangra; at the same time it manages to creatively display feminine grace, elegance and flexibility.

Session 3: Bhangra Fusion (for all) by Ajay

Bhangra is a dance of joy, strength, energy and grace. It is a traditional folk dance from the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent. Bhangra has become a global trend which combines the joyful dance with calorie burning cardio workout. The music is designed for everyone who knows how to dance or not. As long as you know how to jump and smile, it’s a fun workout that will leave you with a good mood!
