Spartan Bhangra Ranked amongst the nation’s elite Bhangra teams, Spartan Bhangra is a competitive dance team that competes nationally with teams from across the world and performs throughout Northeast Ohio at weddings, community events, and dance venues. We combine Bhangra, a South Asian folk dance of Punjab originally intended to celebrate the harvest, with modern influences including rap, hip-hop, and jazz. With most of our members having absolutely no background in dance, we strongly believe that everyone has a knack for the art and take pride in having one of the most diverse teams in the circuit.
Over the past two years, we have competed in eight different states across the Eastern U.S., ranging from Florida to Washington DC. Enjoy an encore performance during YGT Half Time at India Fest USA.
