After the lesson, most people in the room were fully engaged in “trying on” their newly acquired or, for some, freshly rehearsed moves. Virk led the room through a series of simple, repeated movements. There were sweeping arm gestures, kicks, claps and a bouncing, youthful energy throughout.

Non Stop Bhangra is a club night that began in 2004 with the goal of bringing Bhangra, a traditional Punjabi folk music and dance to a wider audience. The group features the turntable skills of DJ Jimmy Love and the dancers of Dholrhythms , alongside live dhol drums, emcee’s, and an ever-growing cast of musicians and dancers. Non Stop Bhangra has built a loyal following in San Francisco with a genre-busting elixir of North Indian Bhangra music and dance, shaken with hip hop, reggae, and electronica. The night is all encompassing and features a dance lesson, dance performances, live music, and DJs. Come join us on September 10th for a beautiful night of music and dance as Non Stop Bhangra brings its colorful production to Ashkenaz for a family friendly edition.

Imagine a scene from a Bollywood movie smack in the middle of a thumping nightclub…the color of swirling saris, the rhythm of pounding feet, and the relentless energy of brilliant beats…that’s Non Stop Bhangra. Basement Bhangra has been around so long it’s practically an institution, and for a while there was nothing similar in the Bay Area to provide a space for people who just wanted to dance to the beat of the dhol. Virk identifies bhangra as a dance of gratitude, and as a first-timer, this sense of gratitude was present. It radiated from the performance that Virk and her company, Dholrhythms Dance Company, undertook shortly after the aforementioned lesson.
