BHANGRA EMPIRE ACADEMY OF STARS
An investment into the future of our youth, community, and culture.
An investment into the future of Bhangra.
Bhangra Empire's Star Academy 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 7 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.
Ages 7 to 10
Ages 11 to 13
Ages 14 to 17
Auditions are held on an as-needed basis for all 3 teams. The audition process involves being taught a 45 second to 1 minute section of choreography. Once students have been given some time to practice and rehearse, students are then broken up into groups of 2-3 for the final audition. The entire audition process will take approximately 60 to 90 minutes.
Students will be updated with their audition status within 1 week of the audition. An email will be sent with the results as well as class recommendations, if needed, as well.
All 3 of our Academy teams are currently full. Our next auditions will take place in Spring of 2020.
