The Nutcracker Excursion, in Conjunction with DPA Care and Share Week

Join us for an evening at “The Nutcracker” Performance by Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) together with our Guest dancers and families!

Dancepointe Academy has organised a Parent and Child Excursion to The Esplanade Theatre on 7th December 2017, Thursday to enjoy ‘The Nutcracker’ ballet performance together, presented by home-grown dance company SDT.

Christmas is on giving and sharing. We look forward to our 2500 DPA Family Members to donate generously via our DPA Donation Cards as part of the proceeds will go to this Nutcracker Excursion for these underprivileged families.

Excursion Program:

Jigsaw Colouring – Each student needs to colour an A5 sizes picture, after colouring, we will combine all the paper and form an A1 image. This activity not only shows proper colouring techniques but also help the students understand about teamwork. Students will have to bring along their colouring materials.

*There will be prizes to be won! They are related to Ballet and Christmas. Can you guess what they are?


We look forward to your participation and generosity in making DPA Care and Share Programme a success!
