It was my pure honour to see so many amazing people at “Bhangra Dance and Fitness Workshop”, which I organized at Squamish Dance Centre in Squamish, BC on March 3rd, 2018. Thank you so much, Squamish’s beautiful souls, for so much love and respect to my work. I truly felt blessed with your wonderful presence at my gathering! For me, it was a delightful moment to share the gift of bountiful happiness, high-energy workouts, active-and-simple living, togetherness, and positive dance energy with you lovely folks of Sea to Sky Country.
Please join Gurdeep Pandher at Squamish Dance Centre on August 31st 7:30 PM for a one and half hour long bhangra fitness workshop! Bhangra dance is entertaining and also a great high-energy workout activity. This form of dance is also used by many participants for fitness or health and wellness goals!
Gurdeep Pandher is a Whitehorse (Yukon, Canada) based Bhangra artist and an author. The works of art he created in order to bring people from all backgrounds together to promote inclusivity and diversity through his dance arts have gone viral and been published internationally. His performances and videos crossed many borders and were watched by millions from all over the world. Gurdeep’s works have been published by BBC News, CBC National, The Globe and Mail, CTV News, and many international art and media organizations. Governmental bodies including Canadian Embassies/High Commissions abroad also published Gurdeep’s works to exhibit an ebullient Canadian multiculturalism and the wondrous side of our great nation.
This workshop is suitable for the complete beginners and for those who have absolutely no experience or idea what the bhangra dance is! Gurdeep will introduce top and commonly used bhangra steps along with providing brief details on the history/background/world of the dance form. This workshop will also be a great opportunity for you to decide if you would like to continue to follow passion for bhangra dancing and fitness in future.

This is a frequently asked question. Anyone who is 10 years old or older can join the workshop. We love small children too, but it is always wonderful to have a separate workshop only for those cute-little ones. Gurdeep is often invited to schools for workshops, so your kid’s school can also consider hosting this type of workshop for the school students. You can suggest your kid’s school to contact Gurdeep via this contact form!
Gurdeep has an excellent and very positive experience working with both primary and high schools in Canada. References are also available from the schools which previously invited Gurdeep for school-wide big workshops or small classroom lessons.
