We're Celebrating Canada Day... Bhangra Highland Style!

Canada turns 150 tomorrow and we're celebrating the best way we know how... with multiculturalism!! We're sharing the Celebration Stage at Exhibition Hall A inside Canada Place tomorrow at 5 pm with the Royal Academy of Bhangra!

Shot of Scotch Vancouver and the Royal Academy of Bhangra first started working together in 2013 and the Bhangra Highland Fusion has become a favourite ongoing project for both our companies ever since. Though coming from vastly different cultures, we find common ground between Scottish Highland Dance and Punjabi Bhangra through the joy of dance. Both dance forms require extraordinary strength, endurance, agility and grace. This project is rooted in multiculturalism, exchange, learning, understanding and sharing - all core Canadian values! 

You might have noticed our fusion project pop up on your Facebook feed lately - the video taken from our performance at the BC Highland Games has gone viral with nearly 1 million views to date, over 15 thousand shares and thousands of amazing likes, loves and comments! We are so proud to represent Canada and Highland dancing in this unique and exciting way!

Join us tomorrow at Canada Place as we celebrate this amazing country we live, dance and celebrate culture in!
