It was a sparkling dance extravaganza and people could not ask for more fun and energy on a Saturday night. DOBODA season 3 couldn’t get any better with tiny tots to professional dancers dancing for a cause.
DOBODA is a dance festival that was started in 2012 as a collaborative effort by Don Bosco School Egmore and John Britto to invoke School Social Responsibility through dance and cultural festivals.
The proceeds of the first two seasons were donated towards improving the infrastructure of a school in Sagayathottam and a rural school in Madhuranthagam.
“This year the funds will be used to develop infrastructural facilities in a school in Pavunjur, Kancheepuram district. DOBODA gives us an extremely satisfying feel that means ‘good people joining together for a social cause’ and we are doing exactly the same. After DOBODA being introduced in Don Bosco Egmore, we have seen drastic changes in the student participation level, not just for cultural but also academics,” said John Alexander, Rector, Don Bosco Egmore.
DOBODA 2014 could be described as a scene from a carnival where it was not just dance but many other activities like food, fun games and the presence of celebrities like Bindhu Madhavee, Jayaprakash, Kanja Karuppu.
