A longtime dancer, Pamela fell in love with Bhangra in 2009 when she joined MIT Summer Bhangra and performed at the Hatchshell for Indian Independence Day. She took a dance hiatus to earn her masters and taught several sections of English literature at UMass Boston while also tutoring fellow graduate students. After graduation, she rekindled that love in 2015, taking weekly classes at the Dance Complex and joining Boston Bhangra that year. Since then, she’s performed for hundreds of people at the House of Blues, Somerville’s Ignite festival, Dance Complex festivals and even on YouTube with Boston Bhangra and Taylor Maurand’s Dil Punjabi. She’s assisted Boston Bhangra with choreography, helped lead classes, and continues to learn more about South Asian music and dance.
Pamela has additional experience with West African dance, tap, and jazz. A regularly practicing yogi for more than ten years, she’s also been a substitute yoga instructor and occasional aerobic dancer. She loves teaching and Bhangra and is excited to combine them both at the Dance Complex!
