CCA Preview ’14: Raffles Street Dance

Raffles Street Dance is a young CCA, officially established only 4 years ago, in 2010. However, it had been growing as a Student Interest Group since many years ago, and Street Dance has come a long way since then. Street Dance performs for various events such as Take 5, National Day, and more. The CCA also organised its very own concert titled ABCD – Anybody Can Dance in 2012 and 2013.

Street is a place where we aim to forge meaningful friendships with people with common interests, allowing us also to fuel our love and passion for dance.

Street Dance places the growth of its CCA members as a top priority, both physically and mentally. We care strongly about all Streeters’ welfare, and make it a point to create an environment where all Street Dancers will be able to call Street their home away from home. Our bonding activities and outings planned throughout the year serve that purpose, placing special emphasis on character development and learning. There is a camp every year for the new J1s, filled with dance-packed and bonding activities, to induct them into the CCA properly as well!

In Street, our members have the opportunity to learn from an experienced instructor, Ms Stefanie Leong, so that they will be able to improve their dance technique in a fun yet safe way, improve their fitness and mental endurance, and also get to explore different styles of dance. We hope that through their experience in the CCA, Street Dancers will learn to lean on one another for support and encouragement, and be able to grow as a team player and balance out each others’ strengths and weaknesses as we develop our own unique style of dancing.

We also hope to be a CCA that contributes not just to the school, but to the wider community as well. Street Dance has, in the past few years, taken up CIP projects such as helping children prepare for their talent show performance at Chen Su Lan Methodist Children’s Home, and raising funds through a performance for children with facial deformities under Operation Smile.

The CCA’s regular practices are on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, though the practice sessions do increase as performances draw near. Our practices include physical training, dance basics drills, and the learning and practising of dance choreography.
