Singapore Chinese Dance Theatre (SCDT)'s Youth Performance Troupe (Youth Troupe) has been a highly acclaimed amateur dance group in the Singapore dance scene. Led by Founding Artistic Director Madam Lim Moi Kim, our Youth Troupe has been actively performing in several community performances, such as River Hongbao and Mid-Autumn Celebration at Gardens by the Bay.
Since SCDT's inception, our Youth Troupe is involved in our Company Production, including "Dance Drama: A Startling Dream", "Dance Drama: Life's A Stage", and "Dance Drama: The Greatest Good", as supporting dancers. Besides having numerous stage exposures, our Youth Troupe will partake in several international cultural exchange events in places like Beijing, Yunnan, Fuzhou, Seoul, Hanoi and Christmas Island.
Through this comprehensive programme, SCDT has witnessed members of the Youth Troupe who pursue dance studies in academic institutions, with some turned professional in recent years.
In 2020, two more performing troupes (Children and Junior) were set up to talent spot young members and groom them professionally. Apart from the weekly practices, students are required to attend additionally practices for upcoming performances and competitions.
All members are to attend our biennial Intensive Chinese Dance Camp and pass the audition to gain admission.
