ASC Diwali Dinner: Saturday October 29th, 2016

Venue: Grand Taj Banquet Hall

More information to follow at a later date.


Last year, our participants had done a great job with their own selection of songs and dance number so we have decided to continue with same theme as last year.

Theme of the show: Open concept. Bring your own theme, concept and unique ideas 

It’s hard to believe but the year is moving fast and Diwali is just around the corner. It’s time for us to start the planning for our upcoming Annual Diwali function. This memo relates to entertainment only. Another memo relate to RSVP and other details will be sent at a later date. 

This year, we would like our young participants to pick the theme of their own choice. It can be based on festival, artist, seasons, emotions etc.

Once you decide your theme, you must select songs based on your theme. Your performance can be on one song or multiple songs as long as it’s no longer than 7 to 8 minutes.

If you wish you can perform with your existing group or create a new group just ensure everyone agrees with your plan. Also please be prepared to welcome newcomers to your group as it increases their confidence and allows their children the opportunity to socialize with similar aged kids.

So what do you need to do?

Provide details of participants who would like to perform (dance or sing) by no later than Saturday October 15th, 2016 in the following format.

If you are in an existing group or new group, we would really appreciate it if you provide details for the whole group together which can help avoid confusion.

Theme of your performance:

List of song/s:

Note: We want to ensure that the songs are not duplicated. The songs will be based on first come first basis. The choreographers will assist the groups and set up the dance routine based on the song.

If you have no group and want us to help you in finding a group. Please send following information. As soon as we have all the names of the interested participants, we will match groups of children based on locations and match up to choreographers to set up groups of performers.

1) You are a participant or a choreographer

2) Your location.

3) Your name and age

4) Your contact detail

Please remember:

Send us an email communication by no later than Saturday October 15th, 2016. (please do not send entries after this date as we need enough time to plan agenda) if you or someone from your family would like to participate or volunteer as a choreographer. Your prompt response will help us ensure that everyone gets a fair opportunity. Also if you know of children who cannot be reached by email, such as newly arrived “samaj” members; please get this information out to them.
