26 cadets of our school took part in the dance performance on the theme ‘Say No to Drugs’ at Amphi Theatre, Mysore on 14 Sep 2017. This was an opportunity to participate in the screening for Yuva Dasara Meet being attended by lakhs of people on the eve of Dasara Festival, a Cultural and Religious environment made by the Royal Family of Mysore Wodeyars.
By the time we reached the arena, the stage was ready with thousands of people down the stage to witness the cultural extravaganza. For the first time in our life, we had performed in-front of such a big crowd and the everlasting experience cannot be explained in words. The programme began at 19:00 Hrs and our turn came at 21:30, we were called on the stage, true to Kodagian spirit we danced forgetting the whole world with a thought that ‘now or never’. Our dance was a ‘fusion’ one with four songs mixed with the theme. Our presentation was in and around the theme without diverting from it.
Overall, the experience was enthralling and joyous, where we could come on the stage in front of Mysorians with our presentation. Thanks to the District Administration, Mysore and Kodagu, school authorities for providing us an opportunity to participate in such a wonderful and historic cultural meet.
