Introduce you a very good dancing school, The Dance Ensemble Singapore (DES). All teachers there are professional dancer.The most important, the course there is well scheduled, everytime 2.5 hours, contain basic trainning, ballet trainning and chinese performance dance...The school combind both chinese dance and ballet together, mainly focus on chinese dance.

My DD studied there for about half an year. She likes it very much. My DD is much slim and flexible after half year's training.

Hi all! :D

Besides Chinese dance and ballet, I heard that DES also teaches other performing skills? Can anyone share more about these other performing skills?

Sounds like a good place to kill two birds with one stone (both Chinese enrichment and dance lessons)... :wink:

For boys, they offer WUSHU, the coach of WUSHU is very famous who is from China.

They also offer Chinese Ochestra teaching, I did not try.

For their dance class, the first half an hour is basic skill trainning, and follow by 1 hour ballet trainning and another 1 hours' chinese performance dance, together with chinese song singing, and di zi gui...

My DD really enjoy this class and benefit a lot...

Thanks for your info, ctct61t! :D

Mind sharing the fees for DES? It says $270 / 3 months on the website. Not sure if it's updated. Is that for twelve 2.5h lessons? Do you have to pay extra for the Chinese Orchestra btw?

Hmm... the more i learn abt this, the more tempted I am to let my DD try it out!

$270 is for 3 months dance class fee, it does not include Chinese Orchestra. My DD not go for Chinese Orchestra course in DES. 2.5 h is just for dancing (basic skill trainning, ballet dance, and chinese dance...sone singing included). You can let your DD try the first lesson with only $10 fee. I did this, and after that, I enroll my girl immediately, hehe...

In fact, dancing class last over 2.5h almost every time, and during Dec holiday, they make up a lot of lessons without paying extra fee.

Every year end, they organize a year end performance in NUS Raffles hall, this year-end performance just finished on 12 Dec. 2010. My DD just joint DES in July this year, thus this was the first time I went for this event. It's really fantasitc...over 20 groups of Kids aged from K2 to Secondary school present their dance during this 2 hours events, I really enjoy it. No wander there are many parents send their kids to DES over 6,7 years.

some of their programs was selected by Mediacorp Chinese new year's celebration...You can know more about their dance by watching this program at the night of 大年三十...

Hehe, I wrote so much, like I'm the staff of DES...In fact, I'm just a mother, Not any relation with DES except send my DD dance there.

BTW, their new semester will start from 7 Jan. 2011.
