Banyan Tree’s Root Folkways, with Tender Roots Academy of Performing Arts, has initiated the Folkways Dance Contest 2017, an inter-school folk-dance contest for children. The Folkways Dance Contest 2017 was an opportunity for young school children to explore Indian heritage through traditional folk forms while also having fun and being part of an international festival. The Gaudium’s Dance students from all grades 5 to 9 enthusiastically participated in the inter-school folkdance contest on 29th October at Ravindra Bharathi Main Auditorium. Our geckos from grade 5 and middle school performed to the Rhythmic moves of Bathukamma and gave a fusion folk performance to the enchanting tunes from Rajasthan, Tribal beats of Oddissi and musical Lavani. Our Geckos gave their best performance and learnt the traditional dance moves that require synchronization, whole body coordination and good team work.

About the Author:

Can education move from merely imparting knowledge to showing how to apply that knowledge? Can we as parents move from mindless test-scores to a more meaningful method of evaluation? Can a child be taught to recognise and create value in everything he does? These were some questions that inspired The Gaudium. Gaudium means ‘Joy’ in Latin. At The Gaudium, we will help each child find joy through the core values of Integrity, Perseverance, Compassion, Appreciation, Humility, Respect and Tolerance.
