Dancing in tune

The purpose of this festival was to promote dance and popularise the various dance forms. The festival had more than 35 different colleges from the City showcase their talents in classical, eastern, western, adapt tune, folk, tribal and retro categories.

The eastern dance genre saw some wonderful performances by dance enthusiasts from Goodwill College, MCC, Maharani, CMR, Seshadripuram, Indian Academy and other colleges on Indian songs. An all girls team of St Fransis De Sales treated the audience to a fine mix of bollywood numbers like Tumhari Adaon Pe Mein Vari Vari, Muje Pyar Nahi Tujhse and garnered a huge appreciation for their quick and flawless movements. 

A team from St Anne’s College, Miller’s Road shook their legs to a fusion of South Indian hits and received thunderous applause from the audience. It was the students of Maharani College who made the audience go crazy with their bold performance on Zara Zara Behakta Hai song and an item number Na Akkipete Lakkamma.

In the event titled adapt tunes, the students were asked to listen to a mix of songs selected by the judges and had to perform on the spot using all the props kept on the stage. The folk dance event was also a big hit among students.

St Joseph’s College of Commerce bagged the overall championship trophy. St Joseph’s College of Arts was the runners up. “We got a fabulous feedback from the participating colleges, especially for our hospitality. As we had assigned different codes to each college, the judges were not aware of the college names. Most of the colleges liked this idea and were happy with the results,” said Supriya, one of the student coordinators.
