I love VP Academy, as it’s a very good place to meet the rest of the Bhangra community. I never thought I would be competing in dance festival competitions so quickly, I feel lucky to be part of such a great team of dancers.
The best class I’ve been to! I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to kick start their Bhangra dancing skills!
I have been a student at VP Academy for 3 years. During that time I have learned the most beautiful traditional Bhangra dance and have developed to a professional level!

VP Academy has an amazing atmosphere and I love coming to class for an evening of fun, music, socialising, exercise and experiencing Punjabi culture! The team is made up of people from a variety of cultural backgrounds, who all embrace these energetic dance classes.

Favourite Teaching style: Teaching the children means you always have to be unpredictable to keep their attention. Creating enjoyable tasks makes their experience fun at the same time they learn routines. My favourite challenge for them Is to take what they know and making them use their own creativity to create something amazing.
Favourite Bhangra Move: Being the muscle behind big lifts and acrobatic moves.
Teaching Class: Beginner & Intermediate.
Highlights as a teacher: Seeing the quiet, shy students that hide in the corner become confident and sociable individuals. Proud parents are at the end of each session is always a bonus.
