It has been a great journey for me and my friends to participate in a competition organised by the World of Kidz - an event company that provides a platform to promote inherent talent in kids of Singapore. We secured first position in the dance category for 2 consecutive seasons.  

This year, 200 kids participated in different competition segments like dance, singing, instrumental and ramp walk. There were as many as 500 people in the audience. We were a group of 5 participants. Teja Nanduri (grade 11), Subhrodeep Hazra (grade 10), Varisht Gupta (grade 10), myself (grade 10) and Sania Shah (a student from a local school) performed a Bollywood dance. It gave us all immense pleasure and satisfaction to secure the first position and hold the trophy high.

It had been 6 weeks of rigorous practice - taking time out from our busy schedules and keeping up other commitments had been challenging. However, since dance is our passion, all of us worked hard to overcome the challenges. As students of CIS, we always remember to contribute to society as part of our CAS. We recently performed in Kebun Baru Community Centre and KYC year end party 2018 in Tuas to do our part for the senior citizens and workers in Singapore.
