Lucknow: Digital entries for ‘Vande Bharatam Nritya Utsav’, a group dance competition across India under Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, will open from Wednesday for the district level.
Organized by the Union’s Ministry of Culture, the competition aims to select the country’s top dance talents and offer them the opportunity to perform at next year’s Republic Day Parade in Delhi.
Participants can perform in four dance categories: classical, folk, tribal, and fusion / contemporary. A total of 480 dancers selected from the Indian Dance Competition will perform in Rajpath.
The competition will take place gradually at the district level, then the state, the zone and finally culminating at the national level.
The Ministry of Culture has developed a dedicated website (www.vandebharatamnrityautsav.in) and a Vande Bharatam app for this event. These will cover all aspects of the event and provide information about the competition to people.
The app and website will be available from Wednesday. Participation at the district level will only be accepted through the latter. To learn more about other ministry competitions such as “deshbhakti geet”, “lori” and “rangoli” competitions, participants can visit www.amritmahotsav.nic.in or download the AzadiKaAmritMahotsav mobile app.
