I was honoured to be invited by the Learning Disabilities Association of Yukon (LDAY) to do a bhangra sessions with the staff members during their one-day retreat at Yukon’s Vista Learning Centre. It was lovely to share the productive dance moments with its awesome staff members.
In a nutshell, we had an amazing bhangra session with wonderful workout and so much fun!
