Need Some Positivity? Meet Gurdeep Pandher Of Yukon


After a week like this one we could all use a distraction, a smile, a few moments to breathe or to – as Lady Gaga once said – just dance.

Enter Gurdeep Pandher of Yukon.

According to one of his tweets, Pandher has committed to “dancing every single day through the pandemic and converting all the newsfeed into positivity/happiness.”

The Punjab native came to Canada in 2006, became a citizen in 2011 and settled in Whitehorse, Yukon in 2012. He shares his passion for Bhangra, a type of dance he started learning when he was 17.

On Twitter, Pandher regularly posts clips showcasing the pure joy of dancing at various sites in his beautiful adopted homeland, rain or shine. Alone or with someone else and with music or without, he spreads positive energy simply by sharing something he loves.

Pandher’s Twitter feed is decidedly void of political commentary, mean-spirited memes and vitriol of any kind. (The closest he came to complaining about anything? “Hope one day Twitter will allow us to do some editing,” he wrote after tweeting a typo – followed by smiling, rosy-cheek emoji.)

Forget every headline you’ve seen this week… if only for a few moments… and scroll through some highlights from the Twitter feed of Gurdeep Pandher of Yukon:
