ABOUT US

House of Bhangra a Punjabi performing arts academy located in Brampton was established in October 2010, by some of the leading members of the elite bhangra team Sonay Gabroo Punjab De (SGPD). SGPD is a competitive bhangra team that has been in the industry since 2001. Since being in the industry for over 12 years, Bhangra has helped us stay connected to our culture, and has shown us how beautiful it is through music and dance.
Bhangra is something that played a big part in our lives; it helped us build confidence and self-esteem as individuals, taught us the importance of teamwork, and created lifelong frienships.

Growing up we never had a studio where we were able to learn bhangra, it was all self-taught through music videos and watching videos of teams from India; we never had any coaches or teachers as it was unheard of. Sonay Gabroo Punjab De started off by practicing in basements and backyards to Jazzy B. We as a team wanted to do something more for the younger generation, and wanted to have a place where students could feel like they are apart of something. We are not just a dance studio but a family, that works on making each and every member better not only as a dancer but also as an individual.
We are so committed to sharing our passion that we’ve made it into a business, so that we can always be apart of Bhangra. We want to have the legacy of what was just an ordinary all boy bhangra dance team continue to grow through boy teams, girl teams, and co-ed teams for the years to come.

House of Bhangra today has two locations to offer bhangra and dhol classes for students from the age of 5 and up.
We have an extensive 15 month curriculum for all of our students that is taught by professional instructors, to ensure every student is learning the technique of bhangra correctly. We annually hold an academy night where all students perform on stage for there friends and family, to show them what they have learned, ranging from level 1 all the way to our senior teams.

Our mission is to keep the art of Bhangra forever young and talented. We at House of Bhangra plan to achieve our mission by educating our students to become professional, talented, performing artists and continue to provide them with the right tools and platform of events to show their talent to the world.
