Show me your moves! - DugroStar

The response for Dugrostar's talent search was overwhelming. It is great to know many parents place a lot importance on honing their child's artistic talent. This says a lot and goes to prove that we are not paper qualification chasers alone. It says that we also believe and know the importance of extracurricular activities.

Moving and dancing is a big part of my culture. If you know and have seen bhangra in action then you know exactly what I mean.
So when Dugrostar suggested that we show you what kind of moves we can strut, we delightfully obliged.

Immediately after my children's year end exam, we dived right into learning the steps for Dugrostar's catchy song. We trained so hard that it brought the rain and thunder. Looks like we have incidentally discovered rain dance. So if you ever need rain, be sure to follow the dance moves which is shared at the end of this post.

It was simply a beautiful evening and we thoroughly enjoyed dancing our shoes off in the rain while mummy burned some calories in a fun way. 
We have found the best rain dance!

So if you are free, head over to the mall (as listed above) for a  family fun filled day to shake off your Monday blues because a family that chills together, stays together. 
If that reason alone is not enough, then come because according to one of the panel judges - En Az'farr, artistic activities play a big role in building social and communication confidence in the little ones. It opens up many learning possibilities for them. 

So do it for your little ones and let them get inspired by watching the lucky and brave 280 finalist who will be strutting and swaggering on stage for you. Lets show them our support and encourage them to give it their best.

Here is a short snippet of some of the dance moves you could be dancing off to.
Hope you will enjoy and groove to it as much as w did.
Happy Dugrostar to you!
