Dance and Music

About 50 girls from all year groups learn Classical Indian Dance. Many reach a very high standard: one or two each year will perform their Arangetram. Our dancers are often invited to perform in various Sabhas in Chennai and Tirunelveli and also to join in Natyanjalis (Festivals of Dance) in Tanjore and Chidambaram.

Hundreds of pupils take part in Folk Dancing for which we have won many competitions at State and National level: the services of our dancers are always in demand and they are invited to perform all over the District.

The school choir gives many pupils the opportunity to learn classical Indian singing. The choir is invited to perform at many functions and conferences.

We host several music workshops with an organization from Chennai and there are frequent concerts at the school for such things as Carnatic music.
