Spartan Bhangra @ ADZ 2019 (First Place)


Hi Everyone! Sorry for the spam :p

We had a really great time in Madison, Wisconsin this past weekend. As always, we are so honored to have shared the stage with so many teams. Huge congratulations to Boiler Bhangra for their placing and to the rest of the teams that lit the stage on fire!

We would like to thank the ADZ 2019 Competition Board for putting on a great competition and our liaisons for being so patient with us throughout the weekend. A special thank you to Amit Kohli on Stanford Bhangra for helping us tie our last pagh, Saagar Menon for letting us use his dhol, and First Class Bhangra for letting us borrow a shikke for the weekend!

Thank you so much to Srikarran for our hype mix and Teg Hans for our first shikke segment in our mix! So thankful for getting to work with reliable DJs this season!

We are so grateful for all our alumni for giving us constant feedback and critiques during our prep- Raghav Tripathi, Mahadev Shastri, Rishabh Mazmudar, and Neelesh Satpute.

As for my co-captains, Alisa Quemado, Srikarran Sowrirajan, and Diya Ramanathan and my co-choreographers, Grace Ahuja and Neeva Patel, thanks for all the work you’ve put in for this team!

We would love feedback from the BTF community on our performance at ADZ 2019. As a collegiate team, we are constantly looking for critiques so any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you Mithin for both the Back and Front Row Videos!

Congrats on first, and a huge shoutout to the ladies for holding it down! Spartan is stepping it up at every competition.

Below are a few of my callouts:

1. Energy should not overcomensate form and the completion of moves. The ladies in Ferozi and Red are model examples of proper balance between grace, energy, and execution.
2. Passing the rose to the Jodi idea has been done several times now
3. Having 16 committed dancers is truly a blessing if utilized correctly. Formations creativity and cleanliness was not there- even when having 30 markers on stage.

Examples of formation cleanliness issues

Good luck for the remainder of the season, and if you have any specific questions feel free to message me!
