Dancing with the feet is one thing but dancing with the heart is another and at the LSR 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.
The dance society performs for a multitude of intra-college events, such as:
The society encompasses all forms of dance, and we have 3 main segments:
Classical: comprising of all Indian classical dance forms, wherein synergised dance renditions are prepared, retaining the essence of each classical form. All the members are encouraged and given an opportunity to develop as solo performers as well.
Choreography: applies different dance forms such as contemporary, lyrical jazz, ballet into creating a thematic representation, and is choreographed into a dance ballet.
Western: amalgamates major western dance styles such as hip hop, Bollywood, jazz, wacking etc. It builds on each style and fuses them into western dance productions.
We strive to attain excellence in performances conducted both inside and outside of college through intensive training which is not only gruelling but also extremely rewarding making us one of the most active and appreciated societies at LSR.
