When the fast tempo of Bhangra, an Indian dance, combines elements of martial arts and fitness, the result is well, extreme.

And that’s what Amargit Sangha, member of the Xtreme Bhangra team, demonstrated to the community at an open house, Saturday, Jan. 12.

“Our association has taken on the traditional form of this dance and modernized it into what we call Xtreme Bhangra,” Sangha previously told the Guardian. “The Xtreme Bhangra team seeks to make this eastern dance and performance art available and enjoyable to people of all backgrounds and ages.”

So far, the fusion has appealed to dozens of parents who have enrolled their sons and daughters at the studio located at 8 Automatic Dr. There’s a two-fold reason for this: The youngsters not only enjoy a high-impact cardio workout, but they learn some traditional Bhangra moves in the process.

The studio offers a varied curriculum that includes dance, fitness, martial arts and educational activities that promote healthy lifestyle, confidence and discipline.
