Welcome Jhankaar, The Most Awaited Dance Fest Of St. Andrew’s College
Fest season has set in once again and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We’re all set for another fun-filled year of amazing events, interesting themes and heaps of talent! Kick starting the season on the 10th of August, is St. Andrew’s College, Mumbai’s much awaited inter-collegiate dance festival – Jhankaar.
Organised by the students of the college, Jhankaar has been offering its stage to versatile dancers of various colleges to showcase their talents and enable them to project their uniqueness to the world since the last 15 years. Each year they come up with a socially relevant and compelling theme, the highlight being the ‘Dance For A Cause’ segment where current concepts and issues are addressed through some great choreography. While this segment will bring you to the edge of your seat, the other categories namely, Streetz, Bollywood & Classical Folk will make you want to match steps with the fantastic dancers on stage.
This year, the theme ‘Fitness’, aims to highlight the importance and necessity to adapt a healthy lifestyle in today’s day and age through dance. Previously, Jhankaar has witnessed the presence of many social figures like Mr. Marzi Pestonji, who have inspired many of the dancers performing at the fest.
A fest of this magnitude of course, also helps the organising team and volunteers to enhance their skill set, communication and experience in working as one team, in addition to being a stepping stone for the aspiring dancers.
This immensely sought after fest in Mumbai has also been a part of the promotional activities for the acclaimed movie ‘Step Up- All In’, in India.
Having proven itself time and again, Jhankaar is all set to dazzle again this year with some of the most fabulous dancers from top colleges coming together to compete against one another. We are definitely not missing out on this one and nor should you!
See you at St. Andrew’s on the 10th of August.
