Cultural Dance (Girls) Formal.jpg

Vision


Inculcating values through the love of arts.

Mission


A platform to inculcate interest and strengthen character through Cultural Dance.

Overview


The Cultural Dance has been actively involved in school and outdoor performances with a variety of dance styles including Chinese Contemporary, Jazz Dance, K-Pop and Modern dance.

This was possible with the care and guidance of the CCA teachers-in-charge, Mdm Diyana, Ms Ho Sing Ern, and Ms Chen Yonghua. Most notably, our instructor, Ms Teng Ru Hui had coached our dancers on relevant dance skills, knowledge and choreography.

The students develop their understanding of the basic dance skills through the varied dance styles that help them to structure and strengthen their knowledge of dances.

The Cultural Dance has received Achieved Accomplishment for Singapore Youth Festival Aesthetic Performance 2017 for its first entry in a Chinese Dance category despite having 30% Chinese students as members.

Every November, Cultural Dance conducts a bonding camp. Through this camp, students learn more about one another and learn to respect other ethnicity and religions. It also provides the opportunity for students to display their graciousness by looking out for others and exposed to cultural dance knowledge through teamwork and sharing.

The Cultural Dance continuously acts as a platform that supports and further develops the character building of students in Juying Secondary School.
