With the backdrop of the Aravalis, about to start is the celebration of the year. NIIT University brings to you, ., the place to be this January. Go back in time with us and witness the majestic world of India’s myths and legends from a time long forgotten.
The third chapter of Ingenuity promises to be bigger, better and crazier than ever before. From the first chapter, with the theme ‘Adventure’, we witnessed the musical wonder of ‘Them Clones’ and one of our nation’s favorite comedians ‘VIP’. The second chapter brought around the resounding beats of ‘Nucleya’ and the crazy head banging riffs of ‘The Limited Experience’ symbolizing the year’s theme ‘symbols’. We promise you that this turn of the page is going to be wilder, grander and most of all legen- wait for it……. dary (considering we’re pulling everything from legends and myths with our year’s theme ‘Mythos of our Ethos’).
So tune your guitars, get your dancing shoes on, ready those trigger fingers and warm up those vocal chords, because this fest is going to be the place to be this 30th of January. Also we need some help to find our Sita so the help would be greatly appreciated. #WhereIsMySita?
Details of events:
Battle of the Bands:
“Your band, your music, our fuel. You ignite it. “
They put rhythm to words so that the lyrics would touch our hearts and that was the birth of music. Music is what emotions sound like, which is probably why music has the power to inspire hearts and touch our souls. Every song written has a story to tell, a hidden emotion. If you and your buddies are poets of the art, then bring out your axes and prepare to battle. Let the sound blaze your mind and the music touch your soul. This is not an event you’d want to miss.
“Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances” – Maya Angelou.
The real message of dance is to open up the beauties of life to those who have no other way to express themselves than through their bodies. Dance knows no boundaries, dancing is for everybody, everywhere. Street dance is about style, it’s about expression; regardless of your origins. At ingeNUity, we aim to capture the true essence and spirit of street dance. If you’re one with a few tricks up your sleeve and would love to show off some raw moves, let your feet do the talking at Urbanos!
We dance for laughter, we dance for tears,
We dance for madness, we dance for fears,
We dance for hope, we dance for screams,
We are dancers, we create dreams.
Dancing is like creating dreams with your feet.

We invite you to set fire to the dance floor and raise the roof while competing with some of the best dance crews around. Let’ dream together!
They say that dance is a conversation between one’s body and soul, expressed through the fluidity of motion and the grace of one’s persona.
