Beautifully showcased by students, all the plays were an eye-opener for the audience. There were dance competitions comprised of Freestyle Solo and Group Dance under various categories like western, classical, Hip Hop, Rock, Folk, and Fusion. Music categories had Solo and Group performances in vocal, instrumental as well as bands. The audience was completely enthralled by the young budding talents showcasing astonishing performances on the stage with so much of gusto.
Oakridge Einstein Campus believes in helping students identify and nurture the talent within. Often times some children do not get to grow their talents because they never got a chance to discover them. They never get told that they have the potential to sing, dance, speak. RADIANT RHAPSODY is one such platform provided to the students all over the state wherein they could showcase their talent and enjoy the talents of other students as well. It was a day to cherish and celebrate such amazing talent among young students” said Hema Sanjay, Oakridge Bachupally Campus Principal.
