D.C. Bhangra Crew



Biography

D.C. Bhangra Crew (DCBC) is an all-female bhangra dance team representing the D.C. Metropolitan area. DCBC consists of first- and second-generation students and individuals who seek to further explore the rich and vibrant culture of Punjab through the lens of performing arts. We aim to be an example of equality within a circuit that is traditionally male-dominated.
 
D.C. Bhangra Crew was formed by a group of girls from George Washington University in late 2008. DCBC gave its debut performance as a competitive bhangra team at Apna Virsa Apna Punjab (AVAP) in April 2009. The team has expanded to include girls from all over the D.C. Metropolitan Area and has continued to spread their love of bhangra to the local community and beyond. Despite coming from different schools, dance backgrounds, and styles, the member of DCBC have worked together for the past years to promote a team of unity, collaboration, diversity, and traditions and hope to continue doing so for years to come.
