The great thing about bhangra is how free its form can be. Unlike some other stodgy and exclusive dances, bhangra can be danced by anyone, be it a little child, or an 80-year old grandpa trying to show a 78-year old grandma that he can move better than MJ. Aaaooow!
Bhangra must always, always be danced with a certain nonchalance. Looking too serious is a big no-no, for this is a dance of pure joy and abandon. Also a big no is shakin your bum from side-to-side, that just makes people wonder if your pelvic girdle is a bit wobbly.
Surdies are known to start getting jiggy with it for every rhyme and reason. If there's reason to celebrate, clear the floor, oye!
Surdie Papaji, most pleased:" Shabash Puttar!!! Tu full marks laya, aur pass bhi ho gaya!!! Chaak thei futaii!" *Jumps out of chair and starts doing the bhangra, even though he's full of aloo paranthas. Such is the joy*
Bharatnatyam and Bhangra are two ends of the dance scale; one demands elegance, discipline and strict form, while the other just needs a patiala peg or two to make it enjoyable!
