Coach Sahab’s love for Bhangra started when he became captain of the Michigan Bhangra Team (MBT) at the University of MIchigan- Ann Arbor. After graduating college, Sahab joined and captained Furteelay’s premier all-male Bhangra team Furteelay Shokeen. In his 9+ years of dance experience, Sahab has danced at 20+ Bhangra Competitions nationwide and now judges Bhangra competitions across the nation. Through Furteelay Dance, Sahab aims to spread his love for Bhangra to the future generations of Bhangra dancers in the Metro Detroit area and across the world.
Ever since he could remember, Gursimran has had a passion for Bhangra. His professional involvement began in 2009 when he founded Furteelay Shokeen. Since then, he has been Captain of the team, leading them to several placings throughout the national circuit. In addition to Furteelay Shokeen, he mixed and danced for other teams (I.e. Bhangra Knightz, Nachde Shokeen Gabroo, Punjabi Hit Squad, and Wolverine Bhangra). Gursimran has seen the evolution and dynamic change in Bhangra throughout the years and admires creativity and innovation long as traditional aspects are present. He aims to share everything he learned to help the next generation reach new heights!
Sahil has been actively involved in the North American Bhangra circuit as a dancer, choreographer, captain, and judge since 2009 and competed at over 50 competitions across the continent. Coach Sahil is one of the original founding members of Furteelay Dance’s premier bhangra team, Furteelay Shokeen. After college in New Jersey, Sahil came back to Michigan and used his experiences to help transition the team into the next generation. With over a decade of dancing and traveling the world, Sahil’s dream is to pass on his knowledge and share his passion for dance with as many people as possible.
