Dance Club CCA (Performing Arts)
Our Dance Club members train under a team of accomplished and experienced dance instructors. Besides participating in the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Presentation (Dance) every two years, we also perform during annual school events and celebrations such as Chinese New Year and Speech and Prize Giving Day. We are also actively involved in community events such as Telok Blangah Community Club’s National Day Dinner.
Besides the sheer joy of dancing, learning dance builds confidence, discipline and relationships. Our dancers have mastered basic dance moves and developed skills, such as balance, coordination, flexibility and musicality. With months of intensive training and amazing teamwork, our dancers have consistently attained the “Accomplishment Award” at the bi-annual Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Festival since 2012.
Irina, 6 Opal, shares, “Dance is all about being self-disciplined and having perseverance. I have been in Dance since I was in Primary 3. I love to dance and enjoy learning new routines.”
In February 2020, our dancers had their formal full-dressed rehearsal at the NUS University Cultural Centre. “I felt excited when I was selected to participate in this year’s SYF presentation. During the rehearsal, I was a little nervous because the stage was very big and I had to dance in front of professional judges. Remembering all the hard work that our dancers had put into the practice sessions, I calmed myself down and focused on the performance,” said Alara, a Primary 3 dancer.
In view of the current Covid-19 situation, the SYF Arts Festival has been cancelled. Nevertheless, our dancers feel that they have had a rich learning experience that has built their character. Aggie, a Primary 5 dancer, remarks, “We have been practising very hard for the SYF. The practices have been very tough but I have learnt not to give up. We have to be receptive in accepting these changes. I also make the effort to do stretching exercises at home so that I can be more flexible.”
