Alliance francaise celebrated the month of April with several dance shows. Especially on April 29th the campus was filled with music and dance for 100 years of Dance – An exhibition. As I walked into the campus at around 9:20 AM, unlike other days the place was crowded and kids were performing Bharathnatyam, Yakshagana and Katak at the entrance. It was a very beautiful sight. Many artists dressed richly in tradition, gracefully walked around the premises. The music and dance on that lovely morning created a beautiful ambiance.
All students, including our teacher were so attracted to the music that we wanted to be seeing the performance than sitting in the class. After the class, I stayed back and my friend Seb joined me there to view rest of the performances. All forms of dance were performed there – Bharathnatayam, Odissi, Kuchupudi, Katak, Kathakali and contemporary dance forms.
On 5th of May, I got to view Hip hop dance called Temps d'arret by Miguel Nosibor….As this was the first time that I was watching the dance form, I was totally blank on expectations. So the flexibility and graceful movements really kept me glued to his philosophical theme (title translates as “arrested time”)
