A visit to SCDT is a learning journey to provide students with a behind-the-scene experience at a professional Chinese dance company. Hosted by the company manager, students would embark on a journey of discovery!
CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES (CCA)
Through a structured Co-Curricular Activities syllabus, SCDT hopes to develop interest as well as provide them with the fundamental skills to continue dancing beyond school. We partner with three secondary and seven primary schools in their dance CCA programmes.
SCDT has, in the years, initiated a Chinese dance graded syllabus as an Enrichment Programme for the 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."
