Ludhiana, October 21
Some local youngsters were given an opportunity to sashay down the ramp to enable them to gain confidence at a show held here last evening.

A lot of students of the Indo-British Dance Academy performed dances. Tiny tots as young as three years of age performed with elan. Every participant selected popular dance numbers, which were interspersed with fashion rounds.

The final round was the question-answer round, which was conducted by Sukhminder Singh. The questions were interesting and the girls gave good answers. At times the enthusiasm of the audience became overbearing and the answers drowned in the cacophony.

Boys outnumbered girls. Twentysix boys came wearing ‘dhotis’ and ‘duppattas’. They too were asked questions by the anchor.

The chief guest was the IGP, Mr Chander Shekhar. The judge for the show was Jonita Doda, a model and actress.
