Jcumsa Blue Week: Bhangra Workshop
6 September, 2016
James Cook University College of Medicine and Dentistry
JCU Medical Students
Bhangra is an artform which is extremely vibrant, energetic and promotes wellbeing through strenuous, but fun and intoxicating cardiovascular exercise. It is a danceform which has its roots in the agricultural northern Indian state of Punjab. As mentioned in last week's lectures, JCUMSA and Rhythms Bhangra - the medical school's own bhangra crew - will be holding a FREE bhangra workshop tomorrow evening in building 46. We hold this event with the hope of promoting exercise and broadening cultural awareness and tolerance - two very important areas to work on when it comes to improving the mental health of all Australians.
Come along to learn the basics of bhangra and to master a small segment from Rhythm's Bhangra's 2016 cultural fest performance!! Hope to see you all there :) Don't forget to wear light, comfortable clothes (you will be moving around) and be sure to bring a water bottle, because we will be stepping up the heat!!
