Saturday November 10 (SF): Non Stop Bhangra – Celebrates Diwali
As we wind down 2012 before heading into hibernation for December, we invite you to come celebrate the festival of lights with the Non Stop Bhangra crew for our last NSB event of the year. Diwali is known not only for the illumination of lights, but also as a time to reflect upon and celebrate the good fortune and relationships of the passing year while spreading positive energy for the coming year. What better way to celebrate such an auspicious and beautiful occasion than to share a dance or two or three with the beautiful people on the NSB dance floor. So bring a light, your smile and your most vibrant, colorful style and get down with Non Stop Bhangra one last time this year!
