Little girls performed a dance for Orugalluke Pilla. This was organized so well and received a great applause. Another classical Bharatanatyam item presented by Mrs.Ritu's students, was really impressive.
Then followed the kids skit - Panchatantram. This was all done by kids aged 5-8, with attractive animal costumes and taught a great moral 'Satyameva Jayate'. The song 'Gili Gili ga' mixed with a great dance composition sparkled the evening. This was again presented by the small kids.
A contemporary Adult skit Dharma Peetham, captured the audience, and explained the different colors of people we see everyday. This was written and directed by KC local talents, but very professionally presented. Big girls then presented their 'Thippalu Thappulu' with a cheerful dance, and got so much applause from the audience.
The final presentation and the highlight of the evening was Dance Dhamaka - a great mix of old melodies with beats and dance which was a great composition.
Though the show was started a bit late, audience just stayed till the end of the show, and appreciated much, which was ended vote of thanks by Mr.Sankar Guntur and the Indian national anthem 'Janaganamana'.
Overall this Ugadi Vedukalu had a good gathering, and people enjoyed the evening.
