Members of the Chinese Contemporary Dance Group learn ballet, jazz, hip hop and other different types of dances during our weekly sessions and all these activities help to develop their senses as well as support visual and auditory development. Chinese Dance is not only an appreciation of aesthetic CCA. A simple step and a few movements make up the graceful Chinese dancing gesture. It not only allows the dancer to display the gracefulness and beauty, it also builds confidence of a dancer to perform in front of the audience.
The dance group attained Silver awards in the Singapore Youth Festival competition in 2008 and 2010. The dance group went on to achieve the Gold award in the SYF Central Judging Competition in 2012.
