Description

The University of Huddersfield Bhangra Society aims to celebrate and educate the cultural heritage and history of the art form of Bhangra. Open to all abilities, our Bhangra dance class is a great way to improve your health as well as make new friends.

We hold our regular class every week on Monday's from 7 - 8pm in Studio One, in the University Sports Hall. Led by Hardeep Sahota, who accomplished a Masters-By-Research (MA) degree, exploring the history of Bhangra; and has also authored the much-acclaimed book, Bhangra: Mystics, Music and Migration. He is the founder of both the 'World Bhangra Council', a global organisation that brings together its member states to celebrate the art form of Bhangra and 'World Bhangra Day', an event in which like-minded Cultural Ambassadors from around the world take part in shared global performances in unison.
We also have other lead artist such as Chaanan Sond and Jas Dhesi, both professional Bhangra Dancers, with many years of experience delivering a mixture of new contemporary styles of Bhangra as well as classic sub genres of Bhangra, such ‘Luddi’ and ‘Dhamaal’.

 

 

 

We hold regular social activities for everyone and are directed by the recommendations of the society. We now invite you to take part in these exciting, FREE classes and Bhangra celebrations.
