Indian girls are going places! This time girls from Visakhapatnam are making the country proud. Four girls from SFS School and two from De Paul School, Ukkunagara have been selected for the International Ethnic Folklore Festival to be held in New Delhi between October 12 and 18.
Shrushtii Multicultural Centre will be hosting this international event which will see the participation of 250 national and international artists from India, Poland, Mexico, Indonesia, Iran, Philippines and other countries.
The girls presented Sambalpuri folk dance at the national-level contest which helped them qualify for the international round.
Meet the girls
Also, the girls are really looking forward to the event as it is a golden chance for them to showcase their skills.
V. Nynita, a Class VI student of SFS School, feels the forum will help them meet artists from various countries and allow them to improve their performance. “This is the first time that we are moving to a different territory to perform,” she says.
R.H. Tina, another student of the same school, is very excited at the thought of sharing stage space with international artists. She says that she participated in various inter-school contests held at divisional and district levels but this platform gives her a unique experience.
G. Dimple (Class VII) and P. Roopa Thanishka (Class V) of SFS School credit this opportunity to their training in classical, folk and western dance that they had been doing for the past few months.
Similarly, V. Shyama Sowmyasri (Class VI) and Neha Akshaya (Class IV) of De Paul School, Ukkunagaram, are happy to get a chance to showcase their dancing skills in the upcoming festival.
