Shaan Punjab Dee (ਸ਼ਾਨ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਦੀ) or SPD is a nonprofit Punjabi folk dance academy that promotes Bhangra, Gidha, and folklore in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Originated in 2012, from a small group of individuals later on led by coach Prabh Saini. SPD has grown to become a part of some of the most recognizable dance teams in the world.
At SPD, dancing is not only limited to body movements in a rhythmic manner but rather is a platform that improves, exercises, mental health, and leisure for all genders, age groups, and ethnicities. Over the years, SPD has collected many prestigious awards, on various international stages and is most notably known for being undefeated in professional competitions in North America since 2015.
With the aim to promote folk dance, SPD is notorious for the revival of Malwai Gidha in 2017. The goal at Shaan Punjab Dee is to preserve the Punjabi culture and educate individuals through various art forms, one we passionately work to achieve every day!
