We are excited to announce the return of our dACADEMY Contemporary Dance Curriculum, written by Ms. Leia Ang, for all our ballet students! Ms. Leia attained her Masters of Dance Studies at the University of Auckland (NZ) in 2019, where she deepened her comprehension of dance education, and was exposed to the rigour of research writing.


Currently in the dance world, Ballet dancers are increasingly required to perform Contemporary Dance works with confidence. With the aim to further develop your child’s potential in dance, we have designed a short course to introduce Contemporary Dance technique(s) to your child. 


Practically, this programme provides your child with an avenue for training to build a rounded portfolio for DSA (Direct School Admission) through dance. Additionally, our team of educators at dACADEMY (Contemporary Faculty of Dancepointe Academy) believes that Contemporary Dance can be an alternative medium for growth and development through the premise of dance improvisation. 


The Short-Term Contemporary Course offers:

  • Exposure to the Contemporary floor work techniques 

  • Training aimed at enhancing dance performance versatility

  • Exposure to the technique of improvisation, which encourages personal discovery and self expression 

We recommend this program as an excellent opportunity for your child to broaden their dance skills, incorporating Contemporary techniques alongside Classical Ballet, further developing their versatility as a dancer.

In line with the mission for dance as a means to educate - more specifically for our school, it is to grow and develop each student’s potential as a dancer, Dancepointe invites you to join us in a 3-month programme where your child will be introduced to the joys of Contemporary Dance.

Certificate of Accomplishment: A Certificate of Accomplishment will be awarded to your child at the end of the programme. Please note that he/she will have to attend a minimum of 9 out of 11 sessions (including the final showcase) in order to receive this certificate. 


Final Showcase: The programme is designed to build into a final showcase where parents will be invited to attend the students’ presentation (an augmentation of their learning experience) in an informal setting to celebrate the achievements of the students through this course.
