dTEAM™ is the performance and competition team of dACADEMY™, the contemporary faculty of Dancepointe Academy. dTEAM is lead by Mr Goh Shouyi together with our dACADEMY Curriculum Head, Ms Leia Ang and her team of teachers.
dTEAM aims to identify dancers with promising technical and artistic attributes, and to nurture them to fulfil their potential. As we believe that unearthing each child’s unique potential takes time and intentional guidance, our programme is designed to take each child through a year-long journey that is facilitated through various opportunities by many educators, artists and experts.
Dancers will undergo group and individual training with our team of teachers on a regular basis to hone their techniques in various genres. They will be offered master classes/workshops conducted by local and international dance artists from within and outside of the academy. Selected dancers will also prepare for competition items and will be given the opportunity to compete on various platforms, e.g., MIBC, CSTD, GTB, AGP, etc. Other opportunities, such as the Immersion Programme, will also provide dancers with valuable exposure to the professional community in the local and international dance scenes. In summary, dACADEMY believes that by intentionally exposing the dancers to these opportunities and platforms, they will be encouraged to consider further pursuing dance as a career, e.g., as a professional dancer, teacher, choreographer, etc.
1) Immerse and exchange with experienced dance artists from locally and internationally. Dancers will also get a chance to be mentored in choreography and performance by guest choreographers/teachers, and attend relevant talks by specialists for dancers. If the opportunity arises, they might experience a day shadowing professional dancers at work. Finally, they will meet other dancers of different cultures and backgrounds to talk about dance and life.
2) Perform on various platforms locally and internationally.
3) Compete in local and international dance competitions to gain professional stage experiences.
