SUNY Geneseo President Denise A. Battles first saw the Bhangra student club perform during her early days on campus. It was the first time she had seen the traditional Punjabi style of dance.

“It’s very joyous,” says President Battles. “I thought, I would love to be able to do that.”

Watch the president practice with the Bhangra club in the newest issue of the Geneseo Scene alumni magazine.
