Srijya: The Choreography Society

About us

Srijya is the choreography society of Hindu college which has been functional since 2003. A choreography society follows contemporary and jazz dance forms, unlike western and classical societies. Every year a ten-minute theme-based production is created by the society, where the themes range from social issues to mythological stories that intend to spread influential and powerful messages across audiences. We follow routine based schedules consistently to compete with other dance societies in the dance circuit, within as well as beyond Delhi University. Srijya has participated in many competitions across different colleges which include IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, BITS Pilani, BITS Goa, NIT Kurukshetra and many more. Participating in outstation programs help students ignite new ideas and experiences within themselves providing an opportunity to present their talent. Dancing is not limited to thematic performances in thematic competitions but also trying different dance forms in Freshers’ Welcome, Graduation Night, Founder’s Day, Mecca, the annual fest, and many other departmental functions. Srijya, along with Aarambh & Adhrita have been organising the Annual dance festival ‘Aramya’ every year. It aims at bringing multitude of dance forms and providing a stage for showcasing unique talent. Our daily practices are filled with both fun and productivity and even during the pandemic the society tried its best to continue with the practices in a disciplined manner. The society organised an online dance competition, ‘Releve’ (2021) and a covid relief fundraiser with the aim of providing a small helping hand to the many affected.

 

Aim and Vision:

We aim to promote contemporary as a dance form so that more and more people get familiar with it. Srijya has always been eager to perform on every possible platform to showcase our creativity and artistry.
