Front-Liners and Home-Staying Life-Savers: We Are All in This Together

Have A Happy Summer

It has been a great pleasure and truly an honour to teach online Bhangra classes since the COVID-19 started. I am so happy that so many people were able to do dance-workouts while being home with "Pay What You Can" price during hard times in the pandemic.

Now, summer has arrived. Especially, in the north, summer is precious. In a real sense, we just get 2 months of summer. Therefore, I have decided to take a break from my online classes for two months of July and August to be with our summer. I will resume my classes in September and will send an email by middle or last half of August after I announce my new classes.

Life is short. Be happy, kind, generous, forgiving, and enjoy your summertime!

And dance often!

-45C Cold, Bhangra and Art Inspiration‪

My viral bhangra video in the Yukon’s -45C temperature inspired an artist/writer from Vancouver Island, Carol Anne Shaw, to create this amazing drawing of me. Based on the drawing, she also wrote a touching poem on her Instagram. ‪Dance creates positivity and inspires.
