VIRTUAL DANCE COMPETITION
The home Dance floor was the event that was thought of as a platform for the alumni to showcase their talent in this lockdown situation. Most of us have a very monotonous lifestyle these days. People are tirelessly working from home without any source of entertainment. There was tremendous support from our Director H Chaturvedi and Prof. Gagan Katiyar – the Head of Alumni Cell for executing this idea of Home Dance Floor event.
There were three broad categories male, female and kids. Interested people had to send their videos for respective categories. There was an overwhelming response from all the alumni. It was very difficult for the judges to come up with the winner in each category. The participants were judged on the basis of 5 parameters like execution, energy, control of events, choreography and creativity and lastly overall expression. There were 3 jury members namely Mr Alok Gupta (president GAAB), Neepa Ghosh and Deepankar.
