Loving the diverse line-up- Happy to see KPGD-haven't seen them on a stage in a while!
Also hoping this is the year BBC improves judging transparency!

Appreciate it man! We hope to do bostons stage justice in our return :)

props to APPD for taking the time/effort to learn from an ustaad and put on a solid performance -

if an ustaad is comfortable with a set and is focusing merely on form/execution, why not teach live bhangra in the confines of that set without worrying about set creation so the team can excel at that? im sure after this experience, APPD will be able to come up with their own sets and be creative (which they are obviously capable of doing based on their previous performances). saying a team can't use a set their coach has made previously is like saying nachdi jawani and sgpd's junior teams shouldn't use segments from their senior teams sets (unless people are against that too)

i think if you have an opportunity to learn from the best, you'd be foolish not to

i think judges influence this too - for example, i know some judges that really do advocate a wide, low dancing style. after going to a competition and getting critiqued by a judge saying that, one would probably incorporate into their teams execution, and pass the advice on etc

so glad you guys decided to go 16, unc is one team that i thought definitely always had the depth of dancers and work ethic to pull it off and be really clean, and you guys def did just that.

echoing what sahil said, one of you guys's biggest strengths is that the girls aren't overshadowed by the guys. radhika probably has some of the best stage swag out of the majority of dancers that ive seen and pooja/rani kill it always as well.

the set seemed a bit long (not sure if it was actually long or not), but I think your ending will hit harder if you condense it a bit and people are a bit fresher for it. its tough to not look flaily when your tired, and you notice it a bit from the newer dancers which is expected of course -

yeshel/abhay make a great lead jodi, while your other jodis do so well that i think the fact that you rotate the other ones to the front so much shows how strong your team is.

was hoping to see naishal dance with you guys but was disappointed :/

despite losing your strong seniors, i think you guys should be placing everywhere you go next year for sure. hopefully things work out better and you can compete more often and show everyone the talent you have.

loved the throwback post jhummar - just wanted to throw that out there real quick

really enjoyed watching you guys live at buckeye, bringing a hype 16 coed set isnt easy for most collegiate teams to do, and you guys did a boss job. i think seeing mostly the same set with 12 instead of 16 just made it seem a little "looser" and didn't hit has hard, but thats most likely because of how tight the formations stayed with 16 and seeing the 16 set first. ive always enjoyed your vardiyan as well (especially that black/white one :) )

congrats on your first place at SPD, wish you guys were in a few more bigger lineups this year - sahil keep killin it!

also props to black/white girl at SPD who handled her rogue chunni situation really well

It's hard to get these kids to hate other teams and have the passion to push themselves to be better than other people.

My first comp I went to, there were two little fellas on my team who were talking to another team member, before we went on stage, telling them how we sucked and we were going to lose. If I'm not mistaken, that's what you should be telling the other teams lol.

Back then the mentality was much more pendu, and it was about pride and dignity. Today it's about the number of people you can add on facebook and snapchat at a comp.

hatred and feeling negatively about your competition isn't the only fuel to success (and that's not just related to bhangra). respect what others do, and if you want to, aim to be better than them at it. there are plenty of teams out there with great people on it that i enjoy hanging out with the whole competition weekend, but at the same time, i would love nothing more than to outdance them and have the team i'm with destroy theirs come stage time. i know you and many other dancers have enough passion for bhangra to get amped up to compete while still being friendly.

i do agree though that for the most part, the pre-comp mixers suck haha

I am very happy to be a part of blowout this year - but I am also sad to see the absence of another North Carolina team, namely one that was the only collegiate team to place at Burgh this year (UNC in case the reference wasn't obvious). I am sure Blowout committee has its reasons for making the selections they did, but I would have personally enjoyed seeing and competing against ALL the best collegiate teams in the country.

definitely follow sue's advice - there aren't many dancers on the circuit who have danced for so long at such a high frequency and stayed physically fit enough to do so

Bhangra Mixes and Music / Re: CBS MIX- BAB 2014! by GSingh and Shaun Atwal
« on: December 09, 2014, 10:47:37 PM »
really enjoyed the prop segments (mixing and song selection) as well as the ending. nice to see punjabna brought back for jhummar as well :)

really high quality mixing but that goes without saying - GSingh never disappoints.

I shall be listening to this in the gaddi often methinks

when you watch a set and wonder "if this placed first or second, would anyone have complained?" - then there is probably some concern. can't obviously speak for the rubric/judging but you guys executed amazingly well as a team as always. i personally would be curious to see what a set with less variations would look like now from you guys (kinda like your vpd/bayside sets from 2012, i think those are my favs) but you guys think of some cool stuff.

saw this on youtube a couple days ago when it got posted and was really really impressed. like i wrote on cmu's video, coed teams shy away from powerful/fast choreo these days but you guys showcased it very well and kept it hype throughout. great stuff.
