Chakshika –Have you ever wondered why there are seasons? Wouldn’t it be great if it was spring all year or summer? Seasons are wonderful! Without them, we cannot play in yellow, red, and orange leaves when autumn comes our way, have fun in the extra hot sun in the summer time, watch snowflakes fall during winter, or enjoy the chilly mornings and blooming flowers of early spring. The little ones of Play House and L.K.G are here to depict the different seasons. End– Parents please note, this is the junior most class. The children are below 3 years.
6] Unmesh –Class I A and C— Yoga and Aerobics — Do you all want to know what is the key to stay healthy and happy ? It is an easy formula – all you need to do is indulge yourself in a regular physical activity and follow a balanced diet. Aerobics, exercises and yoga are wide-spread ways of achieving better health for the health-conscious people of the world .The term “aerobic” means “in the presence of oxygen,”And Yoga in Sanskrit stands for connection, or union. The students of Grade I A and I B are going to display their skills in aerobics and yoga.
End – Indeed very refreshing I think we can definitely try out these exercises and relax our body and mind .A very big thank you Ma’am Anju and Ma’am Navneeta for training the little ones. 7] Chakisha — Koli Dance: [Class d Class IA, D—We now have a fusion of two dance forms Tribal and western. We begin with a Koli dance by the students of Grade I . Koli is one of the most popular folk dance form of Maharashtra State that derives its name from the fishermen commonly known as the Kolis; hence aptly called the “Koli Nritya” or “Koli Dance”. Unmesh –Harsha B – A lot of western influence is seen in the metro cities of India. People tend to be modernized and for some the definition of being modern is to speak English, Look English and even Dance on foot tapping English music . The modern students of Grade I are all set to show us some wonderful steps on western music. End– An incredible fusion of two different dance forms.
The students were guided by Ma’am Harsha, Ma’am Rajuli AND Ma’am Shreesha. 8] Chakisha—[Class II A, B and C Parents]– It is human nature, to take others for granted especially those who are very close to them. We sometimes ignore and fail to realize the importance of parents in our lives. And when most of us do realize their importance; it is either too late or much time has been lost. Life is a journey and we go through different stages in it. Today life has become more of a race. People, instead of enjoying it, want to win it. Their career and their activities have become so important for them that their loved ones are of lesser value to them. With time our attitude towards our parents has changed. The students of Grade II are presenting a short skit and dance to show the importance of parents in our life and why we should respect them. End –Thank you children for reminding us to appreciate and love our parents as they are the most expensive treasure we have. This beautiful dance was guided by Ma’am Monica, Ma’am Jyoti and Ma’am Jayshree.
9] Unmesh– U.K.G A and B– Children and animals have always been best of friends. Not only do children have a natural affection for furry, four-legged creatures. They can also learn a lot from their animal friends. A farm is very special place small children specially when they have to go for a picnic. The students of U.K.G A and B are all set to visit Old MacDonald’s farm to see the different animals and birds and have some fun with them.
End— Thank you children. Really enjoyable the little ones need a huge round of applause for entertaining us and reminding us of our school days. The students were guided by Ma’am Asma, Ma’am Rekha, Ma’am Ritu and Ma’am Trishna.
10] Chakisha –Class IV – Women are an integral part of society but every now and then they are crushed, cursed and sacrificed by the male dominant society, according to their need. Women are the creators and their heart is an ocean of love and concern. The students of Grade IV are presenting a dance as a tribute to all the women who deserve equal respect and love from the society. The dance includes a fusion of tandav, Arabian ,contemporary , samba and folk dance . END— This incredible dance was choreographed by Ma’am Jaya Chande and Ma’am Shampa. 11] Unmesh — U.K.G c and D –Flowers have played a key role all throughout human history. Traces of their usefulness can be found in various religious texts, folk tales, and myths. Flowers also play an important role in making the life of a human being more cheerful and happy. The most important function that flowers have, however, is their power to convey profound human emotions and thoughts the way no other object can. The little flowers of U.K.G C and D are presenting a fusion of flowers and musical notes on some wonderful songs.
End— Wow! Really wonderful to see the beauty of nature presented so beautifully by the little ones of U.K.G .The students were guided by Ma’am Beena, Ma’am Madhushree, Ma’am Meenakshi, and Ma’am Momita. 12] Unmesh –Class III– India is probably the only country in the world where people belonging to different religions, castes and creeds, having different cultures, worshiping different gods and deity live together in perfect harmony. Emotional unity plays its own part. The students of Grade3 are presenting a dance with different ragas , lamps, and colours depicting our integrity. End – Wow! Indeed incredible.

It has therefore taken the initiative of starting “Welspun Aanganwadi”- a day school for the children of the workers colony, as a part of Corporate Social Responsibility. We now have the tiny toddlers of Welspun Aanganwadi presenting a dance on the song “_Akdam Bakadam. After the dance- The dance performed by these little ones was choreographed by Maam Vijaya, Maam Alpa, Maam Meena and Maam Shivani.
14] Unmesh —[Happiness—L.K.G A and B] – Life can be tricky. Life can be sticky. Life can be fun. Life can be sad. But one thing is for sure, life changes like the weather, and we can either “go with the flow” or fight it .What is the use of worrying? It never was worth while, so pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag, and smile, smile, smile as the little ones of L.K.G A and B are here to take us into their world of dreams and happiness and show us that the time to be happy is now and the place to be happy is here.

His world provides him an escape from the boring and lethargic experience he faces every day. When he awakes he finds himself refreshed and enthusiastic to again follow the monotonous routine of his life.

20] Chakisha Class VI Colours – Welcome back—Unmesh can you Imagine a world without colour? Everything would be in monochrome. The feeling would be equivalent to living in a black and white television. There would be not much variation and everything would be of the same shades, black and white. That would be so gray, sad and gloomy. Colour is involved in almost every aspect of our lives. Ever wondered how on fusing two colours together one gets a new colour .The students of Grade six are here not to spread colours only on the stage but in our lives as well. End— An extremely colourful and mind blowing performance. We even got to learn and see that the combination of any two primary colors creates a secondary color. This colourful dance was choreographed by Ma’am Monali and Ma’am Preeti. 21] Unmesh–Class VII Unmesh— Sargam] It is a fact that we are all more alike than we are different.
Perhaps we are the only living forms on earth who are blessed with different languages. This dance is a fusion of two languages that are exploring ways to ensure the greatest amount of harmony between each other and pass on the message of unity in diversity. [pic]End—Indeed a mesmerizing performance by the students of Grade VII, reminding us that United we stand and Divided we fall.

The students of Grade X are here to present a dance fusion of the melody king Kishore Kumar and “The tramp, Charlie Charplin” followed by some wonderful stunts by the boys of Grade X . End – That was a fabulous performance with some breathtaking stunts.
The students were guided by Ma’am Namita Agrawal, Ma’am Kirti and Hiren Sir. 23] Unmesh– Class VIII – We are told that that everything in nature is made up of the 5 basic elements.[pic]They are the Corner Stones of CREATION, because they are in everything. They are live, throbbing with activity and breathe beauty. Each element’s existence depends on the others presence. This fusion of elements and their co-existence in harmony is very beautifully displayed through various dance forms such as Bharatnatyam, Salsa, Break Dance and Contemporary. End— A praise worthy performance by the students. The students were trained by Ma’am Vandana Nair and Ma’am Bindu Verma. 24] Chakisha — Class IX– Women have the most important role in our life, still she is deprived of freedom and identity. It is from her lips and laps, a child begins his learning. Yet her contribution is not recognized by the family and society. Through the fusion of mime and Indian Ballet the students of Grade IX are here to celebrate her personhood. End –
