Sometimes we have to turn all the electronic devices off to disconnect from the outside world so that we can connect with nature and dance to open our hearts to the fullest.
What is Bhangra?
Bhangra is the traditional dance of Punjab. It is native to the Punjabi nation. A long time ago, Punjabi-Sikh farmers started to use different aspects of farming to create a dance form. This farming influenced style of dance celebrates food-growing, harvesting and relationship to the land, which they later called Bhangra.
Just a small amount of time spent doing some form of physical exercise can positively affect your mood and reduce stress. While exercising and dancing outdoors, I’m dispatching joy, hope and positivity across Canada and the world.
