7. Post Graduate Diploma in Dance (Dance & Fitness)
This is a Brilliant Innovatory Course Which Has Been
Introduced For The First Time Anywhere in India.

     Until very recently Dance was regarded as one of the major performing arts in India. Earlier it was adjunct to devotional practice but from the beginning of the 20th century it transited to Proscenium stage and became a major facet of traditional entertainment.
     With the advent of serious academics in Dance and analysis of its major limbs, Dance has acquired very wide ranging parameters. This development has resulted in Dance being perceived also as a major tool for physical fitness and mental well being all over the world. This course envisages to channelise this trait into a serious post-graduate study.

Duration : 1 year

     A Candidate for being eligible for admission must have passed or hold qualification from either of the following :

      the Teacher / Institution should be produced.

    A candidate pursuing post-graduate degree course in any of the above disciplines will be permitted to pursue this course
    simultaneously.

8. Rules and Regulations for Students
Attendance Requirements :

     The minimum attendance required by the University is 75% of the total number of working days. Students are expected to attend all lectures and practicals regularly. Internal marks are reserved mainly for attendance. The annual examination forms of those whose attendance at lectures and/or practicals is less than 75% may not be sent to the University. The Principal reserves the right to refuse re-admission to students who have shown themselves irregular without adequate cause.

Rules :

  1. Students are required to attend classes from the first day of the term. Students who are absent for the first week of a term shall be considered to have left the College, unless they have prior permission from the Principal.
     

  2. Students are expected to attend all the lectures / practicals prescribed in the College timetable. Attendance will be marked at each lecture. Students who do not attend lectures on a particular day may not be allowed into the practicals.
     

  3. Students may absent themselves from College only for a serious reason after submitting a leave application in writing to the Principal.
     

  4. In case of illness, or some other personal matter, the Principal must be duly informed in writing, not later than ten days from the first day of absence. Medical certificates must be submitted when possible.
     

  5. Students who are reported to be irregular will be first warned, and if they persist in being irregular, will have to explain their absence. If the authorities feel that the reasons supplied are not satisfactory, the student will be asked to leave the College in the following term.
     

  6. As a policy, permission to exempt oneself from lectures/practicals is given only to those who represent the College or University for some event (sports, NCC, NSS, competitions...). Their absence at lectures/practicals is condoned, but this does not guarantee them ‘full marks’ for class participation unless their general response to the subject teacher is satisfactory.
