REPRESENTING SINGAPORE BHANGRA TO THE WORLD
S.W.A.T. Singapore is Singapore’s first and only competitive bhangra team, formed in August 2015. S.W.A.T. Singapore aims to put Singapore bhangra on the map, regionally and internationally.
S.W.A.T. stands for “Sadi Wakhri Ah Taur” – “Our Style is Unique”.
The team is made up of the best bhangra dancers in the Singapore bhangra scene, who are selected by audition prior to every competition season. The audition is open to all. In particular, dancers from the various bhangra teams in Singapore are invited to audition. The team choreographs its own routines.
S.W.A.T. Singapore allows our best dancers to challenge themselves, learn from and be inspired by dancers around the world. In turn, they will teach and inspire others, and raise the overall standard of bhangra in Singapore.
