27th October 2012 : DANDIYA DHAMAKA
As part of the 150th Year Celebration of the school, a Dandiya Programme was organized within the school premises for our students, ex-students and parents. The famous South Mumbai band – ‘Mini Satellite’ was chosen to provide live music for the evening and they did a fantastic job. A stage was set up in the quadrangle. About 600-650 students and adults participated in the Dandiya.
All the enthusiastic participants came in traditional outfits, all set to dance away the evening with friends and family. Food and Drinks Stalls were put up by the parents and the school staff to feed and quench the thirst of the dancers. There was a Guest Performance by Kinjal and Chintan, two Professional Dandiya artistes and everyone greatly enjoyed watching them dance.
The Guests for the function were famous personalities like Ms. Dilkhush Reporter and a benevolent ex-student, Ms. Neha Gulmani. They gave away the prizes for the Best Dancer and Best Dressed Person in several age categories. Over 90 prizes were given away. The judges for the Dandiya Competition were Mrs. Heena Kapadia, Mrs. Avni Tanna, Mrs. Binita Shah and Mr. Amit Gharat.
Several invitees, well-wishers, teachers and principals of other schools graced the programme. There was a Lucky Dip at the end and 15 prizes were given to the lucky winners. The lucky numbers were drawn out by our honoured guests on stage.
The Programme ended with the singing of the National Anthem. Everyone present had a rocking time. The Dandiya Dhamaka at Alexandra was indeed a ‘Dhamaka’, a super hit!
