Through focus on the classical arts, SPIC MACAY seeks to facilitate an awareness of their deeper and subtle meaning and values to students.

The mesmerising performance by Ms. Arushi Mudgal in the form of Lecture-Demonstrations was an eye opener for students as well as teachers. Arushi Mudgal, a recipient of the Indian President's Bal Shree Award in 2002, started learning Odissi dance formally at the age of five from her aunt Padmashri Madhavi Mudgal. She has toured extensively in India and overseas as a part of her guru's dance troupe and performed as a soloist at various prestigious festivals. The show became a success due to the efforts made by SPIC MACAY, the faculty coordinator and the student coordinators.
