RedDot Bhangra, a multi-racial Singapore-based group, recently took part in Got to Move (GTM) Islandwide 2018, an event meant to celebrate the diversity of dance and to share its joy to the community.
GTM, an initiative by the National Arts Council (NAC), allows dance organisations and individuals to showcase their passion and talent by means of a variety of activities like workshops, performances, dance parties and dance battles.
“Our aim is not just to dance but to do good with it. Through community outreach events like Culture Campur Workshops, RedDot Bhangra is able to build bridges, grow multi-culturalism, and bring communities together,” said RedDot Bhangra partnerships lead Avrinder Kaur in a statement emailed to Asia Samachar.
RedDot Bhangra said it was elated to collaborate with partners that share aligned goals to celebrate the diversity of dance and to share its joy to the community. As part of GTMIslandwide 2018, RedDot Bhangra is presenting Culture Campur Workshops in conjunction with P7:1SMA, Dance Dynamics and Saherism.
Through this synergised effort, members of the public can look forward to sampling different dance forms like bhangra, bolly-hop, Malay, Mongolian, bollywood and classical Chinese dance at free-to-attend beginner workshops for all ages. Prior dance experience is not required as participants will be guided through simple steps during these family-friendly workshops.
GTM Islandwide 2018 involves a variety of ground-up dance programmes all around Singapore, many of which are held in the heartlands, allowing people from all walks of life to enjoy the activities. Culture Campur Workshops will be held at Lot One Shoppers’ Mall in Choa Chu Kang on Saturday 27 October 2018 between 2pm and 6pm.
