About Indian Dance

Indian Dance aims to provide opportunities for students to learn the various Indian dance forms and to develop students’ passion for dancing.

The CCA sessions are on Tuesdays, 2.00 p.m. – 4.00 p.m. Activities are conducted in the Music room in the school.

Experiences

1.       Dancers start with ‘Namaskaram’ which is a series of hand and leg movements performed before and after dancing. (This is a way to take blessings from ‘Mother Earth’ in order to dance better.)

2.       Next, dancers do warm up exercises followed by basic classical footsteps and hand movements. Then, dancers role model to one another which brings out the best in them. As a team, they coordinate the dance movements and improve on their facial expressions for the dance form. (Guided by Teacher/Instructor)

3.       Dancers showcase their dance through internal/external performances.

Developing our students

Through the CCA sessions, life-long skills such as teamwork, perseverance, confidence, concentration and discipline are developed in the dancers. Dancers display self-discipline while having strenuous training session. They work as a team together and this sense of team spirit encourages them to coordinate well. The instructor’s teaching is interactive and communicative ensuring the learning process is fun and stress free.

Growing hearts and minds

Activities conducted during the CCA sessions are geared towards character building and inculcating the values of team spirit, integrity and empathy. Team building activities provide a platform for the dancers to express their thoughts and feelings which serves as an outlet for students to appreciate one another and their differences. Each lesson focuses on skilful progression to improve fitness level, confidence, concentration, discipline, posture and body language.

Empowering leaders and talents

Respective level leaders guide their level members in the dance steps during break up sessions.This provides the opportunity to hone their leadership skills. Through the various performances, in and out of school, students attain a sense of accomplishment and pride.
