About the Event
Bhangra is an energetic folk dance form that originated from Punjab, India. It was originally created for celebrating the coming of spring. Today, it’s the newest dance, music, and fitness phenomenon spreading all over the world. Bhangra has made its way to America’s Got Talent, the London Olympics, and even the White House.
With over sixteen years of experience teaching Bhangra, Lavesh Pritmani is an enthusiastic and experienced teacher. Lavesh's Bhangra background derives from the PAU College of Agriculture school of thought under the guidance of Ustaad Janak Raj Ji. Lavesh's coach, Dr. Gurinderbir "Pearl" Chahal, helped him understand folk elements and transformed Lavesh's approach towards Bhangra and how the teachings of discipline, confidence, and respect incorporate into everyday life. He has competed and won numerous competitions in New York, Virginia, California, Toronto and Texas.
Additionally, Lavesh frequently conducts international Bhangra workshops. He has taught workshops in Beijing, NYC, North Carolina, Atlanta, Argentina, Berlin, Warsaw, Dubai, Istanbul, England, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Paris, and many other locations worldwide. Due to his vast competitive and teaching experience, Lavesh also judges dance competitions around the world.
In Nov. 2014, Lavesh and his team launched the Learn Bhangra App for iOS and Android devices. It is extremely popular and new people join everyday to bring the joy of Bhangra into their lives.
Join us to learn Bhangra, and discover this joyful fitness phenomenon. All levels welcome!
