Bhangra is an energetic, folk dance and music form that originated from the land of the five rivers, Punjab. Cardiff University’s Bhangra society aims to teach this energetic dance in a fun and enjoyable way. From vigorous kicks to leaps as well as the iconic bhangra squats, be ready for your fitness to be tested! Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned veteran, everyone is welcome.
We offer two weekly classes in the student union during university term time. With discounted entry during the first class of each semester as part of the give it a go initiative, there is no reason to not give it a try.
Ever thought about performing in front of hundreds of people? Hearing the roar of the crowd as you execute the routine you’ve been practising months for, all whilst wearing the world-famous bhangra vardeean. From performing at Cardiff University organised events such as Cardiff Fringe Festival, Go Global and Elements as well as more nationally recognised events such as The Bhangra Showdown and Capital Bhangra you’ll soon get use to performing in front of crowds! (Of course, if you’d rather just learn routines without wanting to perform that is perfectly fine too)!
Alongside learning routines, we also hold regular socials. Giving you the chance to really get to know your teammates. Every member is like a family member and we love to meet and interact with everyone. Socials provide us a way of getting to know one another outside of training and include but not limited to movie nights, bowling, nights out and laser tag. If you ever have a new idea for one of our socials then please do let us know, we are always open to new suggestions.
