Modern Dance

Do YOU have a passion for dance and the performing arts? Nanyang Modern Dance (NYMD), 南洋现代舞蹈团, is the place you need to be at! You need not worry if you have no prior dance experiences, as having a strong passion for dance and a love for learning are values that are even more highly regarded in our CCA. With the right attitude and a strong commitment to your craft, you will be able to pick up the dance techniques in no time!

About Us

At NYMD, we are exposed to different dance genres and have many other opportunities to perform! Some examples of various dance styles we have explored through workshops include hip hop, lyrical and street jazz! We are also given the freedom to explore our own interests like K-pop! We incorporate all that we learn into self-choreographed dances that are then showcased in concerts such as our CCA’s biennial production, Dance Night! Through such opportunities, we get to experience the whole process of putting up a large-scale dance production. Students have a say in everything from the theme, choreography, costumes to stage lighting cues. Our dancers go through thick and thin while preparing for Dance Night, learning from one another and supporting each other to the fullest.

On top of Dance Night, NYMD also takes part in several other exciting events and performances that give us something to look forward to! These include SYF, bonding activities and school concerts such as Chinese New Year celebrations, Teachers’ Day, National Day and Secondary 1 Orientation Performing Arts showcase. During the school holidays, the executive committee organises orientation games and overnight camps, where dancers get to have fun through team-building activities and get to know each other even better. With all these activities, an enjoyable and fulfilling experience awaits you at NYMD!

While joining NYMD will help you grow as a dancer (in terms of technique and experience), it will also help you grow as an individual as you learn and reflect back on your journey. We are more than just a CCA – we are a family! The friendships and trust that we build with each other will carry on into our lives even when we graduate. If this sounds like a journey you wish to take with us, you are welcomed to join NYMD!

Our Instructor

Our instructor, Ms Low Mei Yoke, whom we address as 刘老师, teaches her unique dance style – a mix of contemporary and modern dance. Our students have made significant improvements as dancers under the tutelage of 刘老师. 

With more than 20 years of dance experience under her belt, 刘老师 has certainly been an inspiration to many batches of NYMD dancers with her strong passion for developing the next generation of dancers. In 1991, she founded a local dance company, Frontier Danceland, and has been our dance instructor in NYMD since 2008. Under 刘老师’s guidance, NYMD has repeatedly attained Certificates of Distinction in the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Presentation in the past years. Setting high expectations of her students is one way in which she challenges us to step out of our comfort zones, push our limits and become the best versions of ourselves.

CCA Session Timings

Mondays and Fridays, 3.45pm – 6pm

As CCA is considered part of the curriculum in our school, students who are offered a spot in the CCA should make the necessary arrangements to avail themselves for training. Requests to transfer Third Language classes can be made and personal tuition/enrichment lessons should not clash with CCA timings.
