Canadian Armed Forces and Gurdeep Pandher collaborated to create this Punjabi Bhangra dance video to celebrate diversity and inclusion in The Canadian Forces. Soldiers from different backgrounds make “One Force” with “One Love” for Canada and Canadians. Share it to celebrate “Diversity in our National Defence and Military”!
This happens only in the Yukon, Canada! Gurdeep Pandher and “Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous Air North Can Can Line” created a breathtaking fusion of two famous dancing forms “Punjabi Bhangra” and “Can Can Dance”. The video also aims to bring the cultures of the world together.
Gurdeep Pandher is pleased and honoured to announce that the Bhangra Show is happening at Yukon Arts Centre in Whitehorse on December 18, 2018. When there is cold season around, we warm up the Christmas spirit with high-energy Bhangra moves. We bring delights and make faces smile. Not only we celebrate the Sikh cultural dance in the Yukon, but also bring all other cultures together. Being “inclusive, open and doing things together” is our strength.
Meet Bhangra graduates from the Yukon University! It was fun to teach my Yukon University dance students during this winter and spring semesters. I felt amazed and wonderful by their dedication to learn.
Now they are officially Bhangra graduates 🎓!
They also deserve a big applause for their achievement! 👏
Gurdeep Pandher | Dawson City | Bhangra | Oora Aara – The Song of Punjabi Alphabet
It was the month of January in the town of Dawson City of the Yukon, Canada. It was cold. It was actually really very-cold. The fire was out as well. Then the people of Dawson decided to dance Punjabi folk-dance Bhangra to warm themselves up. And it worked.
Gurdeep Pandher trained local people to dance bhangra and then choreographed it in the Dawson streets to fire up the energy of the bodies.
People enjoyed dancing to bhangra and it also created pure happiness along with the rich-warmth of dance energy.
The Councillor with the City of Dawson government, Billy Kendrick and his team, brought cameras to film it.
And so true, in Dawson City, people found gold and we have found “golden hearts” there.
Dawson City is located in the Yukon Territory of Canada. It the place where Gold Rush happened between years 1896 and 1899. The area is also known as the Klondike region of the Yukon. Dawson City is also known for the marvelous writings of the Yukon poet Robert W. Service.
Bhangra is the folk-dance of Punjab.
