Internationally-famed Odissi dancers perform at Laurels International School

Enthralling performance by celebrated Odissi classical dancers and Dandia Raas by guests on the beat of live music marked the beginning of the festival season at Laurels International School in October 2013, with noted speakers highlighting the need to preserve Indian traditions and values at English-medium schools.

“We may teach our children English, but not the western style of thinking and living. They should not forget our age-old Indian tradition and values” said Justice Giridhar Malviya, inaugurating a glittering cultural function at the school, which has been set up at Rewa Road near Naini under the aegis of UK-based Laurels Global.  




The colorful evening started with an Odissi dance performance from Guru Pankaj Pradhan from Bhubaneswar, who presented the various forms of Lord Jagganath. In his own choreographed dance, he introduced ‘Abhinaya’ to a very high degree of perfection. Guru Sundarshan Sahoo of Delhi presented nine forms of Durga, in which the dancer surrendered his soul to the goddess. The programme progressed with Dandia Raas by students, parents and guests on devotional and modern songs by Neeraj and Puja Singh.
