My first ever Bhangra dance project! Having been a support artist on several bhangra workshops I had not really had the chance to take part in a project and see participants develop and work towards a performance. Not only was it a learning curve for them but for me as well. Having only had two workshops, the kids did great as they dressed up and performed two fantastic routines, one to a live Dhol and the other to recorded music in front of friends and family. Harvi, jag and myself had a great time getting the audience up and dancing last Friday and helped them embark their journey towards London 2012! A very big thank you to Christine Dilkes and the brilliant staff who joined in and made us feel so welcome. Also a big thanks from Jag for his surprise birthday cake, you all brought happy tears to a young 40 year old!
