A foot-tapping start to DHiE dance contest

Ranging from folk and hip-hop to contemporary, there were several marvellous dance performances by the various schools participating in the group dance competition organised by Deccan Herald in Education (DHiE) at Bal Bhavan on Thursday.

The infectious percussive beats and the joyous dances of the Zone B schools brought one of the most enjoyable dance competitions to a fizzing, foot-tapping start.

The contest for the Zone A schools will be held next week.

In the Junior category, the cultural dance group of St Philomena’s Public School won the first prize with their eclectic performance of the ‘dashavataras’ of Lord Vishnu.

The second prize was won by Army Public School and the third by Florence Public School, RT Nagar.

In the Senior category, the first prize was won by St John’s English School, Amruthahalli, for their perfect comic act on an old Kannada song. The second prize was won by St Philomena’s Public School, Doddabylakere, and the third by MS Ramaiah Vidyaniketan, MSR Nagar.

Altogether, 17 schools from the Junior category and 24 schools from the Senior category participated in the competition. With a view to educate people on Disabilities Day, the young dancers of Florence Public School, RT Nagar, presented a heartwarming performance on the dream of a handicapped boy.

SBM, Blossoms, from the Senior group, delighted everyone with their confident dancing and presented a tribute to Lord Ganpathi. The students of Cambridge English High School danced to a power-packed Rajasthani folk song.
