Next year we will be back with more surprises. The highlight and the most awaited part of this season’s CTC was the Spirit of CTC Trophy, which was awarded to Titan. Their story is one that inspires many. They truly are an example of what the Spirit of CTC is all about!”
In addition to performances by participants, the show also witnessed special acts by the Danceworx team and a beatboxing duo who were participants in previous seasons of CTC. A musical bonanza with Priyanka Negi, recent Indian Idol finalist and a performance by the Tushar Jules band were also part of the entertainment.
