    Training Exercise Ideas?

    We have been doing simple choreo! Our issue right now IS footwork. So when I say exercises other than running through routine, I mean ways to practice footwork and work on that, not a full out competition routine (which is they way I had interpreted previous advice). We currently have them do...

    Training Exercise Ideas?

    About 80% of our team this year has never done bhangra before, as a result, we're spending the majority of this semester building basics. Looking to hear how other captains train/drill their teams, or if there are any effective exercises. Did some digging through old threads but didn't find...

    DJ Scam Warning: DJ JsM (Jasjeet Matharu)

    We have messaged on fb multiple times, the whatsapp messages clearly went through bc nowhere did I mention trying to message you on whatsapp that was all you, man (I can post screenshots of that if you want too?). Idk how to get through to you that what you're doing is not cool. I'm done here...

    DJ Scam Warning: DJ JsM (Jasjeet Matharu)

    My team, Twin Cities Bhangra, in/around May asked DJ JsM to make us a mix for this fall, he agreed to it and was very responsive until the point where he got the first half of the payment for the mix, he then stopped responding to any and all communication attempts with us. He would promise us...

    Picking songs for mixes

    kinda wanna bring this post back a little and ask what kinds of songs make up a good saap, khunde, jhummar etc segment? What to listen for in the song itself that makes it good for that specific segment? I feel like jhummar is (at least for me) the easiest segment to pick a song for but other...

    Running Practices/Synchronicity

    My team is gearing up for the coming school year and starting up practices again, and we are doing some major changing and cleaning in the way that we lead/conduct our practices and so I was hoping to get insight from maybe some former/current captains on how you guys organize and run practices...

    Livestreams

    What you're saying makes total and complete sense, especially when it comes to judging. At the same time though, quite a few fusion teams also have the same set throughout their competition season (yes I get that they switch up their sets, but as far as I've seen it isn't ever an extreme amount...

    Livestreams

    I'm just curious as to why bhangra comps tend to not really livestream unless its a comp that is also part of a fusion one (ex: buckeye mela/adz). I know livestreams are huge in the fusion circuit and was just wondering why they aren't in the the bhangra circuit, let me know your...

    Making Phuman/Other Arm Accessories

    @Howie Magz, University of Minnesota, it's really difficult for us to get funding from our school's student unions and activities board since unfortunately they tend to only fund clubs that host large events for the campus community, which means that we are our only source of funding...

    Making Phuman/Other Arm Accessories

    Hi! Being on a collegiate team, we don't have very many funds to purchase new outfit pieces in the case of lost/broken parts. I was wondering if anyone knows has any ideas/suggestions on how to make phuman (I get that it's essentially just pom-poms tied together but wanted to see if anyone had...

    Costume Tips & Tricks

    I'll give that a shot and see if I can figure it out, thanks for the help! A video would also be nice, but as comp/performance season is wrapping up for us (and many other teams), I don't see any need to rush with that. Thanks again!

    Costume Tips & Tricks

    Hi I've seen a few different chunni tutorial videos, but I'm looking for maybe a better version. I've seen the ASD one, but we don't have square chunnis, I've also seen another video which was fairly helpful in getting the gist of pinning a chunni (SPD girls), but didn't explain how to cleanly...
