Here is our performance from this past weekend. We would like to thank BAB committee for a great competition, as well as Hardeep Singh for tying all our paggs. Vic from SGPD tied 2 of ours as well, and that helped us out alot as well.
The mix was made by Anooj Trivedi (AKT Productions) and he did an amazing job, especially under a time crunch.
Constructive criticism would be great to hear!

can i get a somewhat general opinion on this? i get confused when i see a performance from team A who gracefully moves a prop out of the way with their foot while dancing and people go crazy saying how sick that persons stage awareness is, but then if someone is setting up stage and softly nudges a prop over to its marker i see people being like "wow you dont know anything about bhangra".
ive also seen performances where a team will use their feet to kick a prop up or something (examples are bmw at bruin i believe a few years ago and fauj at bayside this year), but some times people say wow thats disrespectful and sometimes they dont care.
i personally feel like if a prop is moved with someones foot and it wasn't done maliciously (as to purposely show disrespect, anger, etc) then its straight, but thats just my opinion. i just wanted to know because ive been confused about it and how judges would handle it, etc.
one of the biggest issues that khirre phul gulab de has with competing is money, and we are currently saving up to be able to compete this summer.
many of the dancers on kpgd compete with "nc state bhangra" and are competing at usc-aag ki raat competition next weekend.
if you go to the link below and simply "like" the comment on the page that says "NC State Bhangra", they can win a free hotel room, which honestly means a whole lot when it comes to gas money or paying for hotels for our next competition.
nc state and kpgd receive NO school funding, as compared to other collegiate teams who recieve quite a deal compared to us.
just simply go to the link, like the first comment under the post (NC State Bhangra).
If you vote we will be greatly obliged!

I brought this up in the PCBCA from Elite 8 video thread but thought I would get more answers if I made it a question here. When watching PCBCA's set from Elite 8 vs SGPD's set from the same competition, I noticed a few key differences:
PCBCA - Cleaner, more "folk" execution of some moves (though some of that is opinion but overall I feel), more uniform dancing, less gimmicks, never going crazy fast or buckwild with energy but keeping enough to make routine look good
SGPD - very innovative, fast paced, some dancers have more nakhra/swag in some moves than others (slightly), people going buck here and there, gimmicks, etc.
I was wondering what truly set these teams apart? I may sort of be answering my own question here, but if two teams go head to head with one being a cery clean, folk team, and one being more focused on entertainment and energy, which ends up being more important? Is sacrificing cleanliness for some faster paced segments worth it? Is not doing certain segments like jattan, mirza, luddi, etc in place of adding in a gimmicky aspect to a different one worth it?
I dont know what I am exactly asking here sort of thinking out loud but lemme know if anyone has similar/conflicting thoughts

-Props to Anooj (skinnier guy in the blue) for picking up the routine overnight with someone like me teaching him hahaha, great job man. Our usual blue jodi, Rohit, was parcticing a bit the night before and injured his knee badly and had to go to the hospital, I am sure alot of people at the Masti hotel saw me and Anooj outside the hotel in the parking lot dancing at 4 am haha. And Lavesh had to spend the whole night at the hospital with Rohit.
-Thanks to Bianca, Priyanka, Sonali, and Pooja, for coming to support us and helping us out whenever we needed it. Big help for sure.
-Thanks alot to Jasraj and Gill for doing the paggs for us, and Jasraj for letting his hand get swollen so he could chimta for us
-Thanks to Bhangra Masti committee and Shan-E-Punjab for letting us use the practice facility (even though it led to the injury :p), and for the hospitality and understanding they showed the whole weekend.
-Also props to Kanwar and Parampreet, who were competing in their first ever bhangra competition. You guys came a long way in the last couple of months
Please, don't hesitate to comment/critique us
