Alegria 2k17 – Day 2
After a rocking opening day, everyone was waiting in anticipation for the second day of Alegria 2k17. The second day started- off on a healthy note with Bokwa lessons from Bliss fitness. The members of the Bliss Fitness academy pumped up everyone’s energy levels with their dance moves. This fitness oriented dance ensured that all the Alegrians were fully energetic throughout the day.
After this energetic session, it was time for the Duet Dance contest. This year, we had one of the finest pairs of choreographers of India- Gaurav and Chandni, to judge the event. Gaurav and Chandni were choreographers on the show Dance+ and have worked with the likes of Ranveer Singh. Many talented dancers showcased their skills to impress the judges. The judges then gave us a glimpse of their own dance performance.
The hot afternoon atmosphere became hotter with the arrival of Tanuj Virwani who was the judge for the Mono-acting competition. He has acted in films like Purani Jeans and One Night Stand. We got to see some brilliant acting performances by the contestants. Some made us laugh while some brought tears to our eyes by their amazing acting skills. Who knows, one of them might become a future Bollywood star!
The crowd then moved on towards the quad area of the campus for the most awaited event of the day- ‘The Face of Alegria’ contest. The crowd went crazy at the arrival of our judge for the evening- Shibani Dandekar. It was conducted in three rounds with some very fine dance and singing performances in between the rounds which kept the audience glued to their seats. Five participants reached the Grand Finale where Shibani and our very own Dr Daphne Pillai ma’am judged the finalists. After declaring the winners, Shibani shook a leg with our fellow Alegrians. The event ended with the ‘Dunk Tank’ game which has already become a much talked-about attraction of Alegria 2K17.
Many other events like Technical Paper Presentation, Tech Roadies, Coding, Circuit Debugging, Rifle Shooting, Tug of War, etc. were conducted in various parts of the campus. It was a long day but the energy was still unbeatable and this is exactly what Alegria is best known for- the undiminishing energy and limitless enjoyment. After such an enjoyable day, everyone is looking forward to the third day of ‘Alegria- The festival of Joy’.
