KCWA held it’s First ever Dancing Star Auditions on Friday, 22nd September 2017 at the Indian Public School, Salmiya. Around 44 children enthralled the audience with their well-choreographed dance sequences and provided thorough entertainment with their graceful and energetic moves.

The participants provided a visual treat to the audience with their solo dance performances. The competition was held for two age categories: Group A (2008- 2010) and Group B (2004-2007).

Mr. Santosh Naidu, Mrs. Lolita Rodrigues Fronteiro and Mr. Vickey Mathias judged the audition rounds. It was a scintillating performance by all the participants, and were congratulated by the judges and audience for the stupendous performances. The judges were awestruck with the tremendous talents we have in our little tots and young generation.

Though every participant is a winner in their own way, only seven best dancers from each category were selected for the finals. Selected finalists from each category will compete for the title “KCWA Dancing Star” –Junior and Senior, which will be held during the KCWA talent competition on 1st Dec’17
