My Story - Avtar

From the Punjab region of India, home of Bhangra folk dance, I grew up listening to Bhangra music legends and watching iconic Bollywood films (from colourful happy sing-a-longs to tragic melodramas) in the Hindi language.

After moving to the South West of England I began running Bollywood and Bhangra dance classes to keep in touch with my roots and heritage.

Bhangra and Bollywood dance can be quite strenuous, but we prefer a more gentle pace in our classes with an emphasis on moving for health and well being.  

We dance to a variety of music styles, including traditional Indian music, folk, filmi, Bhangra and Indian pop, most of which has featured in Bollywood films.

Dance has taken me to so many community events in Somerset - if you see us in our colourful costumes, come and say hello!  

Please look at the 'workshop' section for more information on our INCREDIBLE  INDIA  workshops for schools.  We can offer sessions that are tailored to meet the school curriculum and develop understanding of diversity and knowledge of other cultures.
