April 2018 – Bhangra Dancing

Tuesday 10th April – Bhangra is the exciting and energetic harvest celebration folk dance from the state of Punjab in India.  Bhangra is a great way to keep fit and help develop coordination.  It is very energising and aerobic and is a fun way to introduce participants to Indian culture. 

Liz and Devinder will offer an introduction to India showing us the traditional costumes and instruments that are used as part of the dance. They will describe the history of the dance and talk about the accompanying music.  They will then demonstrate some of the moves and we will then have a go.  It’s great fun and very aerobic. We suggest loose clothing and no heels!
