WHAT IS BHANGRA::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
one of the happiest and most exuberant forms of movements that originated in the Punjab region of North India. Traditionally performed at harvest season in the villages of Punjab, Bhangra is now known as a folk dance that is done all over India during family celebrations and festive occasions. If you have ever gone to an Indian wedding and witnessed people bouncing joyfully in circles, shrugging their shoulders, and laughing endlessly, you have experienced Bhangra. In Bollywood movies, its often shared during scenes reflecting such colorful family celebrations.

WHAT IS GIDDHA:::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Giddha is the folk dance of women in Punjab, known as the counterpart of Bhangra. It is just as energetic as Bhangra but at the same time it manages to creatively display feminine grace, beauty, and elegance. It focuses on more feminine movements using your hips, beautiful hand gestures and facial expressions.
