I know I know…you’re thinking why hasn’t she told me anything yet?
Well here’s what’s going on…
We’ve been a little (read: very) busy here at Bruin Headquarters trying to mix things up. We were tired of the same theatre…the same pre-party…the same judges…the same routines…the same city (JK!)…Not that they weren’t all incredible (srsly!).
So we decided to MIX things up and not be sooo predictable
Meanwhile, we were getting your “when are tickets available” “where is the theatre” “where should I book my hotel” questions, but we decided to let you wait just a little bit longer.
Now, I’m not going to give it all away to you just yet, but here is what I CAN tell you and a little history lesson:
3 NEW Venues
1998: Ackerman Grand Ballroom (Literally a large space at UCLA)
2004: Grand Olympic
2005-2009: Long Beach Terrace Theatre (this was a hit wasn’t it?)
2010: Club Nokia at LA LIVE!
2011-2012: Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills
2013. BBXV. ORPHEUM THEATRE.
Parties: You’re going to have to wait! Can’t tell you everything overnight!
Tickets will be available soon!
It’s no secret that Bruin Bhangra is where teams actually leave their mark. Not just in LA but in the entire Bhangra Circuit. Some of the BEST performances to date have been on Bruin Bhangra’s state.
Quick recap: VIBE, Michigan 2004, Boston Bhangra 2005, VCU, Khalsa Junction (’nuff said), Sher 2008, Soormay and their ENORMOUS Bindrakia banner and tribute, LBC’s comeback and a huge LBC guy towering on Jasmine, APD and KJ Comeback, the list is never-ending.
In the past few years teams have started pulling all the stops w/ their performances…flying dholis, Skrillex tributes, ridiculously amazing choreo, incorporating competitor’s signature moves…
Some of these teams are back and some are brand new. One things for sure, this year you really should only be paying for a 3rd of your seats..because you definitely will be on the edge of them!
Check out the Teams section to get more info on teams!
With all the retired dancers from the circuit, we decided to change our judging panel this year. Take a look at the Judging Panel section!
That’s all for tonight!
Stay tuned, because I’ll be back VERY soon with more details about Bruin Bhangra XV.
See you soon !
