The much-awaited hangout spot, ‘Quark’, promises to be an adequate successor to Zaitoon and much more. The latest addition to the nearly completed structure is an expansive dance floor, where classes in ndlamu, an African tribal dance form, will be held.
The classes will be organized by Verve Dance School, operating in Chennai. “Dancing is a great way to express oneself and improve one’s physical and mental well-being,” says Mr. Antony Arumugam, the chairman of Verve. Mr. Antony claims to be the first person to introduce ndlamu, an African tribal dance form, to India. “Ndlamu, with its stamping steps, is a great way to de-stress and rejuvenate oneself. Given the intensive curriculum at IITM, our classes can be a great way to keep things balanced. We plan to have strobe lights and disco nights so that students can have a bit of fun too.”
Quark will be a two-floored structure that is meant to serve as both a food court and a recreational space for students to interact. Located in the hostel zone, near Saraswati and Alakananda hostels, it is expected to begin functioning this month.
