SCDT has in the years initiated Chinese dance graded syllabus as an Enrichment Programme for primary one and primary two students in schools. With the aim to engage these learners in Chinese dance at a young age, with the option to be accredited.
"The girls learnt something new, and found the programme interesting. As seen with their reactions, they enjoyed the show so much, and have definitely benefitted from this dance art exposure. I am very sure they would like to have more of these type of performances in the future."
