Heritage Dance Academy

The Heritage Dance Academy philosophy is to enhance the knowledge of folk dances like Bhangra, Gidha, Jindua, Sammi, Dhammal, Ghoomer, Kalbelia and other performing arts like theatre, singing, folk orchestra, gatka. It also aims to promote the concepts, history, and symbolic representation of Folk Dances and other performing arts.

Since its creation in 2005, Heritage Dance Academy has established a foundation for teams around the world to express their skill, talent, and charisma and since its creation it has educated and trained thousands of school/college/university students and adults in the above folk dances and performing arts. It also offers recreational classes in these dances and for other instruments for those who may not wish to compete, but are fascinated by the Punjabi culture.

The Heritage Dance Academy teams have been represented in competitions across a variety of countries, including Canada, USA, Europe, South East Asia, South America etc and will continue to aim to keep youth involved in the local community. Heritage Dance Academy also encourages youth from other ethnic communities to join in spreading cultural awareness and tolerance. This community building aspect has been unique to Heritage Dance Academy. Past competitions have involved individuals from different religions, communities, races, and ethnic communities displaying Heritage Dance Academy’s commitment to cultural diversity and unity.

At this time, we have representatives in multiple cities across Punjab who are currently training hundreds of aspirants. Moreover, we have tie ups with various universities, colleges and schools whose students are getting training from our academy and also perform at the national and international level as a part of the academy.
