Bhangra & giddha dance

Bhangra Dance is a famous folk dance that originated in Punjab. This dance leaves you with the greatest desire and enthusiasm. It’s one of those great dance forms that take your creativity to the highest level. Occasion or no occasion, dancing to the beats of dhol, is always a pleasure.

Bhangra’s dance music evokes an unrestrained stream of emotions. It has a bright and intoxicating effect on the audience. You will feel your inner joy as you release muscle tension with the dhol rhythm. 

The Bhangra costume is the main attraction and consists of a chaadra, turban, kurta, rumal, etc. All of these costumes are elegant and flashy, which distinguishes Bhangra from other dance styles. Bhangra began as part of a harvest festival celebration, but eventually became part of a variety of occasions, including weddings and New Year celebrations. In addition, for the past 30 years, Bhangra has gained widespread popularity around the world in its traditional form and as a fusion with genres such as hip-hop, house, and reggae.

Gidda is a popular female folk dance in the Punjab region. Dance is often thought to be derived from an ancient dance known as ring dance and is as energetic as Bhangra. At the same time, it succeeds in creatively demonstrating feminine elegance, elegance, and flexibility. It is a very colorful dance style that is widespread in all parts of India. Women mainly perform this dance at celebrations and social occasions. The dance is accompanied by a rhythmic clapping, with a typical traditional folk song performed by elder women in the background. Traditionally women used to wear salwar kameez in bright colors and jewelry. The outfit is completed by pleating the hair in two braids and accessorizing oneself with popular ornaments such as wearing a tikka on the forehead. Its popularity is not limited to Punjab and India, but it is spreading its fame all over the world. Places like London, Edmonton, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver are not strangers to this folk dance, which is also very popular in Pakistan. Since the 1960s, when the Punjab dance style was codified, Bhangra and Gidda competitions have become more popular throughout the Punjab and Punjab diasporas. Since the 1960s, Punjab’s dance style has spread to Punjab’s college-level dance groups, and since the 1990s, to South Asian student groups in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.
