Short Program description of School Bhangra Classes:-
Gurdeep’s classes are a fun introduction to bhangra dance and culture, as well as a great fitness activity. During the workshop, Gurdeep teaches 4 to 6 top bhangra moves one-by-one. To make the learning process easier, he breaks down all the moves into several smaller pieces. When all the the pieces are put together and moves are well practiced, everybody dances the moves to uplifting Bhangra music. He has experience of working with all levels of students from kindergarten to grade 12.
Number Students in the Class:-
If the room-size is a school classroom, then maximum 15 students are enough. However, if the workshop venue is the school-hall, then it could be 100-150 students depending upon the size of the hall. So he can work with smaller or larger groups of students depending upon the room-size and the preference of the school. For example, at Vanier Catholic Secondary School in Whitehorse, an estimated 250 school students attended his workshop at the same time in the huge hall. But at Grey Mountain Primary, the school divided the whole school into small groups of 10 students. If there are many small groups, then Gurdeep spends the whole day in the school. Whereas the F. H. Collins Secondary School divided all the students into two big groups with 50 students in each group. So, at F. H. Collins Secondary School, Gurdeep taught two sessions with first group session before and the second after the lunch hour.
