Twissha Cultural Educational Society organized the eleventh edition of their annual event Delhi Dance Fever’ 16 – a month long competition that culminated with 3 events hosted in Cyber Hub and Saraswati Music College, Safdarjung. Over 30 college teams entered the competition under two categories- Western Dance and Choreography (thematic depiction through dance). These teams were shortlisted through the ‘First Impression’ round wherein each team had to depict a chosen Bollywood actor on a western music track. On the basis of these performances, 12 teams were shortlisted in the western dance category and 5 teams in the choreography category.

For the next round, three dancers were nominated for the auctions from each team and the president of each team had to bid for three new members from different teams to be absorbed into their own team. These new teams then set themselves up for the Finale of the competition that took place at DLF Cyber Hub. In the Finale, the 12 top teams that qualified in the western category then faced another challenge in the form of Round 1, where they had to perform a fusion of different genres of dance on different sound tracks. Each team was to be led by the new auctioned members, some of the top teams were Verve (Shri Venkateshwara), Zeal (Maitreyi), Mudra (Jesus and Mary), Enliven (Gargi), Tanz (Miranda House) and Lady Shri Ram College. Then on, 6 teams qualified for the next phase which was the ‘Main Production’ round where the teams performed their annual production. This was then followed by a final Flashmob round. Misba (Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce), Verve (Shri Venkateshwara) and Tanz (Miranda House) fought it out for the ultimate title. They were each given a soundtrack to lure in the crowd and make the audience groove. All the three teams gave each other a run for their money and left the energy levels soaring high till the end.
The choreography teams too were pushed to their limits. In the first round, the each team had to depict the theme performed by one of the other colleges which was allotted randomly. The twist in the round was that they had to not only depict but also dramatize the production into a parody. After a round of laughter, the next round was the Broadway round leaving us with the top two teams left to compete for the winner’s title.
Round 3 of Delhi Dance Fever 2016, North v/s South was carried out online. In this round, the teams divided themselves into two groups, North and South, according to the location of their colleges in the University.
