Dance is the hidden language of the soul, perfecting which liberates us!
Presidium is an institution that believes in fostering love, respect and appreciation for all art forms in students. Dance being one of most ancient and celebrated art forms of India, it is deeply engrained in its culture and heritage. To celebrate the beautiful art form and set a platform to showcase the traditional Indian classical dance forms, Presidium celebrated World Dance Day in association with Spic Macay.
Enlivened by the performances of various renowned dance maestros-Bharatnatyam dancer, Smt. Rama Vaidyanathan; Odissi dancer, Smt. Ranjana Gauhar; Kuchipudi dancer, Smt. Meenu Thakur; Kathak exponent, Km. Mahua Sarkar; Kathak exponent, Smt. Ragni Chandrashekhar; the stage was lit up by their beautiful performances. Witnessing the wondrous and magical performances, Presidians were in awe of the dance Gurus and were inspired by their devoted pursuit of the art form. The maestros briefed them about the intricacies of the mudras and steps of various classical dance forms of India. The interaction proved to be a learning experience for Presidians as they brushed up their knowledge about the art of self-expression and weaving stories through dance.
The transcendent experience developed a deep sense of respect in students for the rich cultural heritage of India, its traditional classical dance forms; and admiration for dance as a performing art.
