CHILDREN’s BHANGRA CLASSES:
Young Bhangra Calgary has been known to offer a quality learning experience with a string team of expert coaches. Apart from teaching adults the art of bhangra, we also offer Bhangra Classes for kids. Bhangra is a traditional and energetic folk dance of Punjab. Traditionally, bhangra was performed on the beats of Dhol, Algozey, Bugchu, Chimta and other folk musical instruments when celebrating the harvest Festival of Punjab, called Vaisakhi. In the present era, Bhangra has become most popular extra curriculum activity for people of all ages. School, college and university students charmingly learn bhangra and perform in various Bhangra, Gidha competitions and in local events. With advent of more connected world, Bhangra is not only loved by the people of Punjab or India, but also globally, by the people from various cultures and regions. It surpasses the barriers of culture and language.
Two different groups are made according to age. Separate classes for absolute beginners are conducted. To understand how Children’s Bhangra Classes work, think of it as any normal school, where children join a class and progress further through classes each year. Same fashion is followed at Young Bhangra Calgary, each time we take beginners and make a class, then this class learns and progresses further. We have classes where children as young as 3.5 years old learn bhangra, and begin their journey in world of folk dance. In today’s world, when technology and smartphones have overtaken almost every aspect of our lives, and children tend to spend so much time glaring at screens, joining bhangra dance classes help them with overall development, because dance is an exercise in disguise.
Children’s Bhangra Classes are divided according to age:
- 3.5 to 8 years of age
- 8 to 14 years of age
