The college has numerous fun filled inter –departmental activities, time to time. Perhaps, none of them are as joyous and exhilarating as the dance Competitions. The faculty is happy to see that esoteric talents are highlighted and many tremulous girls come into the limelight, during this popular event. It is also heartening to note that young people play a role and attain awareness of heritage and folklore. Even if they are going to perform a fusion or other modern genres.
There is another very laudatory thing to acknowledge – it is that such competitions test a student’s intuitive nerve and ability to circumvent unpredictable and unexpected situations. It is amazing to see students continue with their piece, despite a broken sandal or a personal loss. It is more incredible, when they pick (Like the Department of Beauty Cosmetology &Hair Styling) a handicapped /challenged student, to give her chance to share in the fun and excitement. Even though they know, it may well give the other departments, a march ahead - on the tally score.
Further moments from the : DANCE SHOW COMPETITIONS
The pulsating undercurrents of fair rivalry and expectations reach a peak, 4-5 days before the event. There is great intrigue and subterfuge, before the staging of the event. Rehearsals are often done in great secrecy. So that other teams, do not catch onto key movements.
There is also a frantic rush to submit the music of each team, as there are extra marks for punctuality and minus marks for late submissions
There are generally two shows and the appointed jury panel judge both of them. There are always members in the jury panel NOT conversant with the genre of performing art. This is to have a non_technical and ‘from-the-heart’ assessment alongwith professionally experienced accreditation. There is mathematical marking in different categories that include: Entry/Exit, choreography, costume, overall team synchrony etc. Then, there are agonizing moments full of suspense, when the counting is done for the announcement of the winning teams. It must be remembered that the jury is not told which departments come on stage. This is to eliminate bias or prejudice.
Finally, the ecstatic joys and screams of exultation break out, right after the announcements, from the happy winners. Old students often remark, that moment is imprinted forever in their mind and are just unforgettable!
