My inclination towards dance begun the day when my parents din’t allow me to participate in the school annual day dance competitions in my KG. After seeing my friends perform so well, I cried for days for not being able to dance with them 😦 . Since then, till today, dance has charmed me in every way possible and I never let go any opportunity.
At school, I had little scope to showcase my talent. But at IIIT, it was like the beginning of a new era. Starting from Fresher’s Day 2005 to Cultural Night 2008, there were many propitious instances which will remain in the pages of my diary forever. Hope you guys remember those days of our Freshers when we were urged to practise day and night to give our very first performance here. Namrata, Deepti 😀 , Srp and Srirang on Kajrare.. Harshi and Shikha on Dolare.. Charan 🙂 , Bhargav, Srujan and Prithvi on Gajuvaka and Dus Bahane.. Me, Prashasti, Maruti 😛 , Mathur and Kapil on Kambaqt Ishq.. Though some of these continued dancing, you dont find the rest on stage these days. Hope they would step up once again in this final year 🙂 .
One of my favourite performances was the classical “trio” performance by Harshita, Namrata and Me in the basketball ground on the song “chinnamma chilakamma”. We truly dedicate this performance to our beloved professor Dr.Govindarajulu, who is very fond of classical dance.
Apart from these, I am a rabid follower of Indian Idol and I was always sad and worried because not even a single good dance show was being aired. I wondered if people preferred singing to dancing?? and always ended up saying a “NO”, looking forward to some good dance shows. Then started my all-time favourite “Nach Baliye” making my long-time wish come true. The show can best be described in three phrases : debonair dances, elegant expressions and charismatic coordination. I would never forget the tremendous performance for “Baahon ki Dharmiyan” by Tina and Hussain. And from there this trend continued… “Aaja Mahi Vay”, “Zare Nachke Dikha” are two more of this kind.
So friends, here I tag each one of you to share all of your dance experiences with us 🙂 … Be it any… small or big.
