The members of Four by Four have been performing together since 1984. They first become interested in bhangra dancing after becoming involved in a school project on the subject. The initial interest quickly developed into a serious hobby as the school group began to perform at local fetes and charity events. National and international acclaim followed with numerous dance championships won.
In the summer of 1994 Sunny, Suki, Marni and Gurdish decided to branch out by themselves, the result was the formation of Four by Four. From an initial membership of four in 1994, this has expanded to over seventy by 2002.
Four by Four have performed all over the world in last few years, performing at venues in Dubai, Germany, Luxembourg, Hungary, Greece, Austria, France, Canada. Belgium, and Spain. In addition they have appeared on various network television programmes including the Barrymoore Show on ITV, Blue Peter and Newsround on BBC 1 and The Zone on Channel 5.
A typical performance lasts between 20-30 minutes, and consists of between 4 and 8 dancers, a dhol player and a singer, depending on the type of performance and function it is.
