The ‘Dancing Sir’ said, “When I enter the classroom, I also tend to keep the students physically active as there is a chance of falling asleep after having mid-day meal. The dancing by students ensures that they do not fall asleep during class hours”. He generally converts all the lessons into the sequence of the song and practice them well before coming to school. At the school, he sings and dances on all those lessons to make it easier for the students to learn.
