The Abada-Capoeira Arts Center on Mission and 22nd Streets isn’t just for capoeira anymore. Dholrhythms, an organization dedicated to building education and awareness of Indian culture, is bringing a little bit of the Punjab to the Mission by hosting Bhangra dance lessons three times a week.

Dholrhythms also hosts Non Stop Bhangra, fusing Bhangra with several other forms of music, this Saturday at the Rickshaw Stop.

Lessons at The Abada-Capoeira Arts Center are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8pm – 9pm.
