Dance is one of the very essences of all cultural programmes celebrated in the country. Dance activities instill in children the ability to free their minds of the past, to free their minds from future stage fears, and give them the courage to handle every situation.

The Dance Club organizes competitions in the school based on their standards such as Pre-Primary folk dance competition, Primary Folk Dance Competition, Senior Classical Solo Dance Competition, etc. The Dance Club members perform for the different festivals celebrated by the school like Republic Day, Founder’s Day, Diwali, etc.

Life Skills Club aims in all-round development of children involving the three Hs: head, heart, and hand. This Club helps in enhancing the capabilities of young children in developing an interest in artistic activities in addition to academic learning. Students learn skills like stitching, painting, and use of waste articles in making beautiful decorative items to enhance the creativity of students and help them to make the best out of waste. These activities sensitise children especially adolescents towards protecting Nature and reducing waste. The students learn to spread awareness among people about not wasting resources and the need for charity.
