~Move to the rhythm of your soul & you'll never miss a beat~
Based in San Francisco, Dholrhythms Dance Company is an organization dedicated to promoting the artistic and cultural heritage of India through the beautiful Bhangra and Giddha folk dances of Punjab, India. Dholrhythms hosts classes, workshops, and presents performances and events that celebrate this unique folk dance and Punjabi culture. Since its inception in 2003, Dholrhythms has grown into a boundless and unique platform for people of diverse backgrounds to come together, express themselves, and dance in a non-competitive and positive environment.
Co-founders Vicki Virk and Suman Raj envisioned Dholrhythms as a way to share their love of community, culture, and dance. The eclectic group of women who dance with Dholrhythms Dance Company have become one of the most talked about groups in San Francisco Bay Area creating a demand for this dance. Led by Vicki Virk's punjabi heritage, Dholrhythms highlights the ancestral and ethnic roots of the Punjabi dance form while pushing boundaries with contemporary influences. The result is a fresh and exciting dance full of joy, energy, and passion.
Dholrhythms also co-founded, hosts, and headlines the legendary monthly event, Non Stop Bhangra, voted as one of the dance floor nights in San Francisco.
