  • Tuesday 16th June saw Asian Arts Agency kick off our summer season with a very special day of education activity. Working in partnership with Bath Festivals, we produced a fun – packed day of Punjabi song and dance at Writhlington School in Radstock, Bath. Enlisting the services of bhangra maestros 4 x4, we delivered two exciting workshops and a performance.

    4 x 4 worked with Year 8 students from the school, giving them an insight into the different drums used, the traditional costume, and of course, how to perform those signature bhangra moves!

    After a well-earned lunch break, the day was rounded off with a special performance from the band in the school theatre. There was plenty of audience participation, with 4 x 4 teaching the audience dance moves. There was even a teacher who volunteered to go onstage and take part, dressed in traditional costume! Finally, students from the workshops joined the band onstage, using props and costumes to create a grand finale finish.

    We had fantastic attendance for all the sessions, with over forty students taking part in the workshops and around 300 students from 7 feeder schools attending the performance. The day was a huge success for the Agency, with students and teachers getting a chance to engage with this positive, vibrant art form first hand. Here’s just some of the great feedback we had from students on the day:

    “I enjoyed learning about the Northern Indian culture and how this linked to the dance. The outfits were beautiful and I felt energetic whilst dancing.”

    I thought that the workshop was really interesting and I never thought that I would have so much fun on a Tuesday!”

    “Sad it’s over. Want to do it again!”

    “It was amazing. It was really interesting learning Indian Dance moves.”
