Bhangra Dance Workshop
On Tuesday, we took part in a Bhangra Dance workshop, learning traditional steps linked to historic north Indian festivals.
We started the session by learning where the dance is from. We then watched a small performance of the dance which we all really enjoyed seeing! The steps were broken down into bite size pieces, which allowed us (and our class teachers!) to follow. Throughout the class, we then learnt more and more steps building up a routine. At the end of the workshop, we demonstrated our newly learnt skills in a performance. Thank you for your contributions towards this day. The atmosphere in the hall was very uplifting, energetic and fun!
