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.
Like previous two shows, this Year’s show will also feature Gurdeep Pandher and his dance students as lead performers. On the top of that, created by the Yukon locals, there will be many great world-class blends, which are highlighted below:-
