mission

The Dance Circus is a platform to connect fledgling dancers in Singapore with experienced industry professionals around the world. 

 

Through exposure to the vast insight of varying technique, work culture and psychological mindset of these industry professionals, we hope to inspire, educate, and more importantly, create new norms and standards of what it means to chart your own path as a Performer.

Vision

We see The Dance Circus as the missing link between dance schools in Singapore and the Western Dance world.

 

Dance education in Singapore is robust and complete through good work done by local schools and companies. However, dancers in Singapore often find themselves struggling to jump the next hurdle in connecting themselves with “something more”; international opportunities, career progression or stability, or perhaps a sense of fulfilment in a career in Performance.

 

The Dance Circus aims to bridge those gaps by creating network opportunities, providing career advice and on a deeper level, igniting sparks that fan into greater things.
