Updated 15th June, 2020

As per the latest announcement by PM Lee, Phase 2 will commence on Friday 19th June. While this is hopeful news that enables Dance Arts to re-open, we will be reviewing the guidelines over the coming days to determine how we can resume our classes at the studio. Much like the rolling out of Phases 1-3 by the Government, Dance Arts may gradually resume certain classes at different stages during the next two weeks, with the intent to resume all physical classes at the studio by 1st July.

We will provide updates on our re-opening plan within the next few days.

We ask for your patience and appreciate your support over these past few months. Thank you!

 

Updated 3rd April, 2020

As per the latest regulations mentioned by PM Lee, Dance Arts Singapore will temporarily close from Monday 6th onwards until further notice. All dance cards will be frozen during this time.

Thank you for your support during the past few months, and we hope to see you all again very soon. Until then, stay safe and healthy.
