Hello,

It was a pleasure serving as judging coordinator and creative director of WBBC this past weekend.  Thank you to all the teams for taking your time and effort to help WBBC succeed.  Without the teams, we are nothing. 

With the wisdom of my years on the circuit and on the WBBC board, I have created something I call the Comprehensive Judging System (CJS).  This in my mind should be the new standard in judging for the circuit.  The CJS consists of a base of the following elements:

1. Judges who are familiar with the circuit and who understand the genre of the competition they will judge at;
2. Multi-level or multi-view judging (i.e., Upper and Lower Level) with separate rubrics;
3. Judge's video chat sessions at least 6 weeks before the competition;
4. Team's and Judge's feedback on the rubric(s) (no rubric should be the sole work of a single author or committee);
5. Prompt analytics and feedback for teams (3 days after show maximum);
6. CJS Analysis

I implemented all six of these elements at WBBC this year. 

I have attached the CJS analysis for WBBC 2014 BELOW. (Authors: Faizan Ghaznavi and Kinnell Shah, in consultation with Yasaswi Raparla).  Kinnell and Swi are both Bhangra Geniuses, thank you for your input and assistance.  see also: the wbbc 2014 upper and lower level rubrics below.

I hope this system helps move the circuit forward and serves as a turning point for the circuit's judging (which has

lagged far behind the quality of dancing). 

Thank you,


Faizan Ghaznavi

Hey everyone, 


Now that Elite 8 is over, I would love some discussion on who we all think the NEW top 10 Bhangra Teams are right now.  Not the BEST, but the top 10 ranked based on placings and overall performances.  Here are mine:


1. SGPD
2. ABC
3. UNC
4. NJ/JW
5. NYPD
6. Cal Bhangra
7. TAG
8. AEG
9. FAUJ
10. JJ (Would have placed higher for me if they performed more)

Off-Topic / Happy Birthday Ankush!
« on: August 04, 2011, 01:38:21 AM »
Just wanted to wish my boy Ankush happy birthday.  4 years deep in the game, and he's only 20.  Never doubt your prowess as a captain, friend, or dancer.  You've grown to become a great man and a kind soul.  All the best and best wishes on a healthy and productive year.  See you soon brotha!
