To make the process of learning fun, elements of dance and drama are interwoven into the curriculum. Dance being an important medium of expression helps in the holistic personality development of the children. The children respond very well to music and rhythm. Our talented children have performed on a number of forums and have been well appreciated for their talents. To create awareness among children about social evils the medium of drama or the forum of nukkad natak is adopted to create awareness. The children often write their own stories and dialogues and deliver powerful messages through the nukkad nataks.Whether it is the story of a young girl struggling to convince her parents to send her to school or the evil of juvenile smoking the children tell diverse stories.
