Canadian Bhangra Dancer Marks 2nd Vaccine Dose With Return to Frozen Lake

After receiving his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, a Bhangra dancer from Whitehorse, in Canada’s Yukon territory, returned to the frozen Lake Lebarge for another celebratory performance of the traditional Punjabi dance.

Dancer Gurdeep Pandher went viral in early March, when he danced Bhangra on the same lake following his first dose of the vaccine. His video of that dance amassed over 3 million views on Twitter alone, and was retweeted more than 18,200 times.

After his second dose, and second dance, Pandher told Storyful he wanted to spread “joy, hope, and positivity to Canada and the world.” He also hoped the cheerful performance would help against “vaccine hesitancy.” Credit: Gurdeep Pandher via Storyful
