Loyola Club of Performing Arts

Performing Arts provides an important means of understanding, constructing, appreciating, and communicating social and cultural values. It allows us to interpret, value, and transmit traditions of the past; explore, celebrate, challenge the present, and build concepts of the future through the imagination. It also encourages team- building and problem solving strategies that have become important requirements in the contemporary work environment.

Loyola Club of Performing Arts was launched in the year 2014-15 with an aim of providing emotional, intellectual, social and aesthetic growth of an individual and to enable students to appreciate, create, and communicate effectively thereby fostering self confidence, self discipline and self-motivation.

The focus of the club is both on practical and theoretical exposure which allow students to develop a complete understanding of the various techniques involved in the three art forms: music, dance and theatre.
