Vibrancy dances into University of Victoria auditorium

Shan-e-Punjab Dance, Heritage and Performing Arts School brings its annual year end show to the Farquhar Auditorium

Share in the vibrant dance and drama as Shan-e-Punjab Dance, Heritage and Performing Arts School brings its annual year end show to the Farquhar Auditorium at the University of Victoria this Thursday.

“We formed by a group of girls who did not know each other, but came together for Bhangra dancing,” said organizer Sonia Grewal. In December, the school celebrated 20 years of teaching cultural dance, song, and drama from India with focus on the Punjabi region.

“Our goals are simple. We listen to youth, we hear their ideas and help to apply those ideas whether that is to a style of dance, dance choreography, dance steps, also if students wish to implement a new idea … or want to build skills in a future career such as marketing.”

The University of Victoria venue serves several purposes, one being to promote education.

“I can not explain how students just love performing on the big stage and they just want to come back for more, and that for me tells me that I am doing the right thing for youth to build a positive society and a positive environment built on relationships and team building,” Grewal said.

 

Get tickets to the Shan-E-Punjab show online at uvic.ca/auditorium or by calling 250-686-3825. Doors open at 6 p.m. on May 8.
