The course in­cludes the folk dance form— Therukoothu from South In­dia and Bhangra from North In­dia. Chil­dren can also sign up for theatre classes that in­clude stage play and mime, pup­petry and creative vi­su­al­i­sa­tion, photo re­port­ing and an­chor­ing events. All the ac­tiv­i­ties in the camp will be taught in a play­ful man­ner to make it in­ter­est­ing for chil­dren and is

slated to be a whole lot of fun. It will cul­mi­nate in a grand fi­nale at an au­di­to­rium where kids who have learnt par­tic­u­lar skills will show­case their tal­ent.
