Movement and Pose in Space and Sound and Silence...and in Competition...and at Weddings...and on TV...

"Dancing about Sculture" from the Barber Institute of Fine Arts at the University of Birmingham. (England, not Alabama)

The University fo Birmingham took 1st place at the 2011 Bhangra Showdown:

So I'm watching this and thinking "What fun! I wanna do that!" Sure enough, the Good Indian Girl is here to help:
"We've all been in that situation. You're at the wedding, the reception, and the hip hop starts giving way to some Bollywood and Bhangra and you're not quite sure how to dance to it." [ohyeah, happens all the time, I hate that! ;) ]

And if you're really good, you can get from Atlanta, Georgia, all the way to compete on Indian television. (which is as bad as American football for all the junk they paste over the screen while you're trying to watch. :/ )
