Day 4: Rock till you drop (Performing Arts)
In India, various facets of performing arts are all pervading bringing colour and joy to numerous festivals and ceremonies, and reaffirming the faith of the people in their heritage. These facets have been responsible for sustaining the long continuities of ancient traditions. They are the link between the past and the present. It thus exemplifies the complex, organic interaction of all aspects of life implicit in all art forms; art is not seen as something apart from life, a mere ornamentation or entertainment, but as an intrinsic part of it.
The event was divided in two categories KNACK and NAACH.
KNACK is a competitive platform to showcase any outstanding Performing Art talent that the student has. E.g. Singing, Playing musical Instrument, Rapping, Stand up comedy etc.
NAACH A platform exclusively for showcasing the talent of dance.
