THE stage was set for a humdinger of an evening and the foyer, which was filled with colourful exhibits interspersed the area with an air of expectancy . It was time for the grand finale of the fortnight-long summer festival organised by Pogo and it was appositely titled The Pogo Art Fest `10.
Following the introduction of the delegates present and the national anthem, the show got off to a rousing start with a colourful welcome dance, which was followed by a variety of dance performances. It was such a revitalising experience to watch the tiny tots in action as each one of them performed with ease and grace.
Each and every performance stressed on art as the kids waltzed across the stage overflowing with a dash of colours -- the fruit basket dance by the children from Vepery and the sea creatures act by the Tambaram team stood testimony to this fact. The programmes directed by the smart potato group came to a fitting end with the fairy tale dance and the MAD team announced their arrival with an energizing holi dance which was followed by many message oriented dance performances-the ones on global warming and child labour had the audience spellbound. The Chinese dragon dance and the Egyptian dance were drenched in sumptuousness and splendour as the spectators watched in rapt attention.
Finally, it was time for the man of the evening to set the stage ablaze. Rob, the children's heartthrob, was given a rock star's reception. This pied piper's incarnate soon got to work without much delay . He had the crowd in a tizzy, as every member present in the hall gazed in admiration-a spray painting with the evergreen theme "Go Green" was the end product. It was certainly an evening to savour and cherish.
