An investment into the future of our youth, community, and culture.


Bhangra Empire's Academy of Stars is geared towards students that have the passion and dedication to take their Bhangra skills to the next level. Our program is for students between the ages of 8 and 17. Though auditions are open to all experience levels, we highly recommend completing our Beginner and Intermediate classes before auditioning.


Our goal is to provide a structured year-round option for students that want to improve as Bhangra dancers and performers. Through a combination of class sessions, bootcamps, and workshops, we are focused on preparing students with the tools necessary to further expand their Bhangra careers as well as provide exciting performance opportunities.

Academy classes will be held once a week for 90 minutes each on Sundays in Dublin. Classes will be held in-person and not virtually. All academy students must be residents of the Bay Area, California. Academy auditions are only open once a year. Students that join are expected to attend all sessions during the 2022-2023 year.

Our academy teams require a level of commitment much greater than our normal classes. Below are a list of the high-level requirements students would need to adhere to:

  • Perform at all 3 Dance-Offs during the year
  • Attend all classes punctually
  • Practice consistently outside of class
  • Practice multiple times a week as we get closer to the performance
  • Submit weekly practice videos of the routine you have learned


Academy auditions for the 2022-2023 year will be held in person. Please find information on location and timing below:
