Everybody within this group has the passion and dedication which has made this team possible.

Unbothered by the hot and muggy afternoon weathed, costumed dancers leaped across a grassy field and into the Guinness World Records family, by participating in the “largest Bhangra dance. In an event organized by South Asian non-profit groups Nachdi Jawani Association and Punjabi Virsa Arts and Cultural Academy (V.A.C.A), the dancers joined in an effort to preserve South Asian culture by spreading awareness of their native Indian state, Punjab. In addition to dance education, Punjabi V.A.C.A holds classes for Bhangra, Gidha, art, instruments and turban tying lessons to individuals of all ages. In sum, the organization aims to enrich young children and teenagers with healthy physical activity and creative art work, which is designed to reinforce “important values such as respect, team building skills, and tolerance.” Punjabi V.A.C.A. currently has 2000 students, and has taught over 10000 students in total since the organization began in 2001.
It is my honour to take this opportunity to thank you for taking interest in Punjabi Virsa Arts and Culture Academy and Nachdi Jawani Bhangra Group. I will share with you a brief history of this organization and its outstanding accomplishments within the past ten years. Today PVACA is the largest Bhangra and Giddha Academy in the world and has taught approximately 7500 students to date, with a current base of 1,000. This is not the result of any one individual’s hard work, it is the result of the hard work, teamwork and dedication of Nachdi Jawani and the Punjabi Vaca team, which has been working devotedly and lovingly to make this academy successful in achieving the goal of promoting and preserving the Punjabi culture. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the entire team behind this academy, regardless of whether they are instructors, management, dancers, well-wishers or corporate professionals. Collaboratively, with the help of all these individuals and organizations we are able to share our message and extend our services to the community and will continue to do so and attain the same results. Furthermore, community and media professionals have also aided to make this academy the success it is by providing the means for us to gain public recognition and attention for our message and goal. On a more personal note, I would also like to thank my family and friends, who stood by me during the creation of this academy and always understood and cooperated with me, regardless of how time-consuming or hectic things may have gotten. It was always my dream that this community work that was initially started eight years ago by a small team, should continue to flourish, regardless of mine, or any other individual’s presence. In the coming years, we would hope to receive the same support from our team so that we can continue to entertain, teach and aid the community for generations and generations to come and maintain our ambition of keeping culture alive. Thank you for your continued support and interest!
