Performing Arts Activities
The ‘core’ activity groups for non-sporting activities’ are Indian music (both vocal and instrumental), Dance, Drama.
The objective of the ‘Music Club’ is to create an exchange of different cultures related to Music across India. The aim is to learn different Music, understand the music of each kind of dance. Learning to play an instrument involves much more than the voice or ﬁngers playing an instrument; it taps into multiple skill sets, teaches one to be organised, enhances perseverance and coordination as well as a host of other beneﬁts.
Students are taught the diverse forms of Indian classical dance and also the various folk forms that ﬂourish in different parts of India with distinct cultural and aesthetic appeals. We aim to bring together classically-trained dancers and at the same time encourage the rich folk culture of our country. The students are exposed to several classical dance forms in the inter-house dance competitions conducted at school. During the various events at school, the students perform classical dances like Haryanvi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Marathi and so on. They are also taught Western forms of dances like Zorba.
