A. Minimum age for participant is 7 years. The performer should have turned 7 years of age by the day of the audition.

Q. Who is authorized to get information or make changes to a group’s item?

A. The committee will only accept requests from the group’s choreographer or coordinator, or any other person authorized by them via email to the cultural committee.

Q. What exactly is the theme about ?

The theme is rather open-ended. One way of integrating it into the performances could be to also look at yesteryear songs, given that music and dance, both popular ones as well as those of more classical vintage, are a reflection of the times. Choreographers are encouraged to be as creative as possible in interpreting the theme.

Q. How early will choreographers receive confirmation of their song selections ?

The sooner the Committee receives them, the better. Songs will be allotted on a  first-come, first- serve basis.

Q. Is there any limit to the number of participants ?

The Committee has only set a minimum number of participants, as the Cary Diwali stage is a big stage. There is no upper limit.
