When Sunderland teenager Allysia Stables was asked to dance in a video as part of a troupe – she never imagined it would become a hit on social media. But that is what has exactly happened as a mash- up of Punjabi and Highland dance has gone vital on Facebook with 5.4million views and 154,000 shares.
The video entitled Punjabi remake of Titanic Dance Song– Drowsy Maggie – has also clocked up 700,000 views on social media channel You Tube. The music was put together and performed by bagpiper Archy Jay – also known as the Snake Charmer.
Allysia is the lead dancer with Northumberland Church of England Academy Combined Cadet Force, and was given the chance to appear in the video alongside other dancers who are attached to the school’s Pipes and Drums section.
