Dancepointe Apprentice Teams 2016
Dancepointe TEAMdpa Programme is established to provide an innovative environment where talented young dancers can further expand their technical dance training with performance-orientated training and experience, given by the most respected teachers and choreographers in our community.
Currently we have 2 main groups: The Ballet and the Contemporary. They enjoy heavily subsidized dance classes with various renowned instructors sharing with them different dance styles in each term.
This group will also be representing Dancepointe Academy for International dance competitions and be given the opportunities to perform for events and projects. For past years, the group had competed in Singapore, Barcelona, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Perth. They won titles such as 1st Positions for Lyrical Solo (Bangkok), Classical Solo (Singapore), Classical Pas Deux (Singapore), Troupe Novelty (Perth), 2nd position for Troupe < 9 years old (Singapore), 3rd Position for Betty Tilley Championship (Hong Kong), Troupe Freestyle (Singapore) and Honourable Mentions for Lyrical Solo (Perth) and Ne0-Classical Solo (Singapore).
In 2015, Dancepointe Apprentice Teams Overall Champion at Grand Dance Prix Europe with their stunning items. They had also achieved over 30 awards at the 2016 18th CSTD Regional Singapore Dance Competitions.
We congratulate them for the dedications and achievements.
