BHANGRA EMPIRE ACADEMY OF STARS
An investment into the future of our youth, community, and culture.
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 11
Ages 11 to 14
Ages 14 to 17
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all Academy classes will be conducted virtually over Zoom. Classes will meet twice a week for 45 minutes each. Teams will meet up in-person 2 times per session for an outdoor, socially distanced, video shoot. All academy students must be residents of the Bay Area, California.
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:
- Attend all classes punctually
- Practice consistently outside of class
- Practice multiple times a week as we get closer to the video shoot
- Submit weekly videos of the routine. Videos will be reviewed by our team coaches and feedback will be given on how to improve
