Our Resource Room (yet to publish)
 

As part of our commitment to promote a better understanding of Chinese dance as an art form in Singapore, we are delighted to announce the launch of an online resource centre for Chinese dance. Our primary objective is to provide researchers, artists, students, and community members with easy access to a broad range of resources, information, and support to promote the growth and development of Chinese dance in Singapore.

Our online resource centre features a growing collection of programme booklets of Chinese dance events in Singapore, contributed by various organisations and members of the public. In the near future, we plan to expand the resource centre to include access points to articles, books, research papers and videos related to Chinese dance.

We believe that our online resource centre will have a positive impact on the community and contribute to the growth and development of the arts. We are committed to making this initiative a success and welcome contributions of resources from the community. Please email us at admin@scdt.com.sg if you would like to contribute to our resource centre.

  LIST OF CHINESE DANCE TROUPES AND ORGANISATIONS  

Chinese Dance Artistes' Association

The Chinese Dance Artistes' Association (CDAA), established in 1984 and joining the People's Association (PA) in 1992, aims to unify and enhance the standards of Chinese dance in Singapore. Through its partnership with PA, CDAA extends its outreach to the Chinese community and participates in various cultural activities.

For over 30 years, CDAA has significantly contributed to Singapore's Chinese dance scene. Comprising mainly local dance teachers and their students, the association organizes programs, workshops, and performances to promote Chinese dance. Notable events include "The National Chinese Dance Competition 1999," attracting 34 local troupes, and biennial showcases like "Dancing In Unity" since 1994.

Engaging in cultural exchanges, CDAA interacts with international artists and organizations, organizing exchange trips and study tours to countries like Cambodia, Vietnam, and China. It also collaborates with PA to mobilize students for events like the Chingay Parades.

 

In 2017, CDAA collaborated with Chinese dance troupes to present "Yesteryears' Chingay," involving over 300 performers of all ages. "Dancing In Unity 2017" showcased the contribution of Chinese dance to the community, emphasizing cultural enrichment over technical prowess.

Chong Pang Community Club Chinese Cultural Dance Troupe

In 1987, the Chinese Cultural Dance Troupe was officially launched in Chong Pang Community Club. Through the years, the Chinese Cultural Dance Troupe has grown and blossomed under the guidance of the Troupe Mentor, Ms Lee Bee Choo and support from the various management committees in the Community Club. The number of members in the troupe has since increased from 10 members to over 40 members today.

 

The dance troupe has participated in numerous local, regional and international events. The dance troupe has performed during Chinese New Year dinners, community-based cultural performances, National Day dinner, Art Festivals and so on. They also took part in the 1990, 1993, 1998, and 2002 Chingay Parades. In 1998, 2000, 2004, they took part in the "Dancing In Unity". In 1993 and 1996, they took part in International Cultural Exchange programmes like "Chu Yan Xuan Xuan" and "Midosuji Parade" in Osaka, Japan respectively. In 2004, they took part in the "Traditional Cultural Exchange" organised by Chong Pang Community Club and the authorities in Tanjong Balai, Indonesia, where they received a very good response from the locals. In 1993, the dance troupe also won the Best Traditional Cultural Award in the Chingay parade.
