Dance

In Malaysia, cultural dance has an important role during festive seasons, ceremonies and official events as a form of entertainment or opening act to welcome guests. With a long list of diverse cultural dance available to learn, having these dance skills will not only help children to be more involved during events but also provide them opportunities to participate in competitions held at school, district or even national level.

About the programme

Since dance is a skill that requires more time and commitment to grasp it, most of our dance programmes are available only for group sponsored children where they will have classes for the duration of at least one year. During these classes, children will learn the basic movements and master the choreography set by our instructors. children will also be invited to perform on events organised by Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak Tuanku Bainun or by our partners and collaborators whenever an opportunity arises

For private paid classes, a minimum of 10 children is required to open.
