Bhangra is a traditional ‘Lawk Naach’ (Folk Dance) of the Punjab. Also known as the ‘land of five rivers’, Punjab is a large region in the north of India and is rich in its culture and tradition. Post partition of 1947 Punjab was divided in two – West Punjab, which now falls in Pakistan and East Punjab, which is still in North India. The two parts of Punjab are referred to locally as ‘Charda Punjab’ (Rising Punjab – with reference to the sun rising the East) and ‘Lendha Punjab’ (Falling Punjab – with reference to the sun setting in the West). Bhangra dance is part of the people’s life and is usually dance to celebrate happy festivals/ occasions.
There are many forms of Lawk Naach that come from the Punjab but Bhangra is amongst the most popular. Bhangra is closely associated with the farmers of the Punjab, who performed it to celebrate the harvest festival of Vaisakhi.
Some of the choreography within the dance reflects the daily activities of the farmers at work, while other movements use varying tempo to demonstrate the skill and agility of the dancers. As you dance, you will learn to appreciate the art of how life and dance can be merged in such a wonderful relationship.
