Sapps, meaning snakes, are a popular prop in competitive bhangra. Made out of robust wood, the sups are a series of equal length flat wooden pieces held together with a metal nuts and bolts. The sups have handles on either side which allow the bhangra dancer to open and close the interlocking wooden pieces. Each time the sups are closed they make a clapping sound which is mostly in rhythm with the beat and step of the dance. Sups are generally used with high energy and fast-paced choreography and add an extra punch to the dance routine. This prop is a necessity for many bhangra teams.
