DanceSport for

Student Development.


DanceSport, also known as Ballroom Dancing, incorporates Standard and Latin American styles of ballroom dance. We introduce students to the evolution of Ballroom from the time of the Renaissance until today. With different rhythms and dance steps to showcase in both basic and advanced styles, students are provided holistic development, improving their physical, social and emotional health.


Under the SEP programme by Singapore's Sports Council (SSC), tda has developed programs aligned with the Ministry of Education (MOE) 's objectives with the most popular being the sports exposure programme entitled  'DanceSport For Fun'.

Objectives in programme:

  • Provide development of new skills and sports knowledge in a safe environment

  • Promote active participation of sports in school

  • Promote team spirit and character building

  • Arouse interest in continual sports participation amongst students.

Under the SEP scheme, schools are allotted a $10,000 dollar-to-dollar matching grant. Your students can take up DanceSport as a new skill and sport to continue developing in! Let your students find their own sense of excellence through this perfect union between Dance and Sport.


The physical demand of dancesport has been the successful subject of scientific research. Many people underestimate the physical attributes and demands of ballroom dancing.


Yet, DanceSport has proven itself over the years to be equally demanding as other sporting activities such as basketball and cross-country running!

Our instructors love working with schools to inspire the love for dance and music through fun and yet educational lessons. We dedicate ourselves to instil discipline, respect and determination in children and youths. To inspire them to reach out and achieve more than they ever thought they could. The programme encourages them to gain self-confidence and social intelligence through the dance form.


Under the National Arts Council-Arts Education Programme (NAC-AEP) provides all students with access to quality arts education experiences. Our Art of Ballroom Dancing programme is both about EXPOSURE AND EXPERIENCE.


We introduce and focus on building a foundational awareness of the world of ballroom dancing. Imparting knowledge on the evolution of different styles starting from the Renaissance to Modern times. We teach students the art of distinguishing diverse rhythms to different types and levels of ballroom dancing styles.


To provide the required deepening of knowledge and appreciation for the arts, we provide:

  • Assembly Showcases

  • Workshops

  • Structured ballroom courses

Schools may use the Tote Board Arts Grant to subsidise the programme cost. There is a subsidy of up to 50% of the programme cost for mainstream schools, and up to 70% of the programme cost for Special Education Schools.
The Tote Board Arts Grant is not applicable to pre-schools. NAC partners selected pre-school centres to receive funding to purchase Pre-School AEP.


Our programs are approved under NAC-AEP 2019/2020 until 31 December 2020.


The programme although done through Zoom, the instructors were very clear on instructions and can even provide feedback class by class. At the end of the lesson, class by class to present their dance which creates a closure for each lesson.


Through this programme as well, we manage to see budding dancers in different the genres and students who had gained some confidence while dancing. We also have some students who are confident to articulate which dance they like.
