Want to Learn to Dance Better? Try our Dance Certification Courses!

The best dance school in Singapore that specializes in dance courses that builds strong foundation and detailed fundamentals, designed for non-dancers with two left feet who really want to become the best that they can be at the lowest cost. It focuses on fundamental, foundation work and choreography training.

One of the most important differences between social class and certification class is that dance certification allows the teacher to correct the students in greater detail. As for a social class, they prefer a more entertaining enviroment.  Social students after 3 years of training will only be able to pass the level 2 Dance Certification at most, whereas students from the Dance Certification Course can achieve up to level 7 within as short a period as 1 year.

With training between 5 to 18 hours a week, this program is for those who like to perform and train under proper guidance. The students in this course get direct attention from the instructors, who will assess each student's standard and plan their classes based on his level and interest.

Learning at a group level, students attend various types of accelerated and correlated dance classes. The course is modular based and is suited for all levels of students.

Even though this course is suitable for anyone between the age of 7 to 80 years old, it is specially designed for working adults & teenagers who are non-dancers with two left feet and have a very busy schedule or travel very often.

After the completion of each dance course, students will get a certificate and will pass the criteria to gain entrance to the Prestigious 3 years Professional Performer & Dance Instructor Course. 

Once you graduate, you will be able to teach the Basic and Intermediate Level Dance Classes.
