    Professional teams leveraging collegiate resources (and vice versa)

    To be honest, I've never even heard of this so-called "Boston University". Was probably just some low level coffee boy. Had nothing to do with our team. NO COLLUSION! YOU'RE THE COLLUSION! Space FAUJ all the covfefe

    Professional teams leveraging collegiate resources (and vice versa)

    Jinkies! You caught us! And we would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!

    Dance Formations App

    @mithu You don't do it by tempo, you do it by actual time (seconds) lol Sure, in the absence of music, "number of beats" is a good choice as the unit of "time" between key frames (a key frame as a single intentioned (as oppose to intermediate movement auto-generated) positioning of people on a...

    Dance Formations App

    This is fucking awesome. As someone who has been using Flash since 2007 to create formations (some of them uploaded for posterity:, this is a game changer for the circuit. Flash was significantly superior to the pen-and-paper technique, m&ms-on-table...

    Reaching Out to all **CURRENT** Dancers/Captains

    Many competitions these days are run by college groups where the organizers tend to be the graduating class that year. In my experience, these individuals, while they have the best of intentions, have little to no experience dancing, competing, and judging, because they’re so busy putting on the...

    GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS JUNE 12: Battle of the Bastards

    Looking forward to your thoughts! :) PS - I do consider R+L=J more fact at this point than theory, so my response above was with that in mind. I'm not completely rejecting the notion of Jon being AA but any actual evidence of him being a singular AA figure based on what has been prophesized...

    GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS JUNE 12: Battle of the Bastards

    I agree, to a degree. While it's better that Jon lead the army of the living against the army of the dead because he knows the threat better than the Boltons and their banner men, who do not realize and may be in denial that Winter Is Coming, the Battle of the Bastards will also basically...

    Khirre Phul Gulab De @ Boston Bhangra 2015 [1st Place] and Bruin Bhangra 2016

    A few questions I think you guys should ask yourself during set construction that I feel would go a long way in producing more impactful performances: - Is this set too fast for us? Should we slow it down so we can actually dance fully and execute the choreography? We shouldn’t want it to seem...

    Best Bhangra Videos?

    I don't go to comps to record videos so to be honest, I shouldn't even be on this list. It may be more stress at times, but if I'm judging and I can set up a tripod, hook my camera to my laptop and get a team a video from my point of view, something they can watch segment by segment along with...

    Mount Rushmore of Bhangra Captains?

    Gurbir (AEG), Faizan (AEG), Ankush (AEG), Abhi (FAUJ), & Cherag (FAUJ) These were the captains of AEG and FAUJ. In addition to being critical components of the success of their teams during their respective years as captains, they most definitely deserve a monolithic monument etched in their...

    First Class Bhangra @ Buckeye Mela 9! [First Place]

    The doors that were closed should appreciate it when DJ Khaled opened them, for ripping them off and taking the hinges off. Because when he ripped the hinges off, he put the hinges in the fucking boy's hands. Yeah, in the fucking boy's hands. You know, he took the whole door off and the hinges...

    How to Make a Decent Set

    If it feels like a team just stuck random jhoomar steps where they don't fit, then clearly, the jhoomar hasn't been choreographed well, doesn't flow well and doesn't have the intended impact. Once again, Ankur is pointing out that when teams get creative, you should be able to discern what the...

    How to Make a Decent Set

    Variation on Sammi? Phumania? Dhamaal? Hulk Buster tribute? Pataka? You tell me, Soulja Boy. The "what" of good choreography is just as important as "how" it is performed and executed. However when it comes to whether choreography resembles "bhangra" aka the "original", how you perform a step...

    BBC show review

    This intrigues me a bit. Someone wearing a vardi for a dance performance is not wearing it for religious reasons. They are not assuming a Sikh identity nor are pretending to be Sikh for those 8 minutes on stage at a competition for material prizes and momentary fame. That would be absurd...

    Bhangra Draft 2015

    It was a super weak prompt last time (Only one first round pick? It's either a best dancer thread or your favorite team member thread) it was asked and continues to be a super weak prompt. Almost no one answered the question as OP had intended last time - not sure why you would think this time...
