DME Dance Society
Name of the college society: फितूर(Fitoor)
Existing number of participants: 22 Nature of the society:
- Promoting and enhancing dance culture in the college through various dance forms.
- Dancing with the feet is one thing but dancing with the heart is another and at the DME Dance Society, we believe in doing just that. We believe in engaging the dancer not only in technique based training but also finer nuances like expressing and breathing from the soul and inspiring them through the medium of dance.
- Dance is a way to communicate to a soul of a person, a way by letting out human emotions and expressions in the form of a dance engaging storytelling to resonate your idea with the audience and receive a higher and better perspective of the same idea.
- To promote discipline, management, unity and responsibility among students so that they can use their creativity through various dance forms to enhance their dancing skills.
- A member will only be allowed to join one (1) society only.
- Before auditions, we will be distributing application forms.
- Selection will be based on the performance which includes facial expressions, energy, on beat steps and creativity.
- Selective members will be required to submit a nominal fee i.e Rs 100.
- We strive to attain excellence in performances conducted both inside and outside of college through intensive training which is not only grueling but also extremely rewarding in making us one of the most active and appreciated societies at DME.
- The society provides a perfect platform for their members to show their talent and interact with people having similar interests. But do keep in mind that the amount of hard work and time you’ll have to put in would be immense.
This society is all about those who love to dance. This society gives you an opportunity to perform and compete in various dance events and competitions while representing the college for the same. Students have to clear an audition round before they become a member of the college Dance Society.
Life in the time of coronavirus can be scary, stressful, and isolating, whether you are in quarantine or not. To fight the boredom (and the urge to panic) Fitoorians are up for turning all to the mood-boosting power of dance.
