Updates to ADC!

(Updated on 23 Nov)

As 2021 comes to a close, we would like to sincerely thank you for your commitment and trust towards Singapore Dance Theatre.

In the past two years, we had to adapt to safety management measures and various class registration restrictions for Adult Dance Class (ADC), and we are truly grateful that we had your kind support and understanding through this. We are also thankful that the restrictive measures are slowly easing, giving us a glimmer of hope to return to normalcy, as much as possible.

In our continuing efforts to striving towards making dance fun and truly enjoyable for everyone, we are changing the class level names and increasing the price of our class cards by approximately 6%. This decision was not easy as we wrestled with affordability for students and rising costs of our operations. Despite the increase in price, our class pricing is still well within and even below the standard rates of adult dance classes in Singapore.

Effective from 1st January 2022, the following are the new class level names and class card prices:

2021 Classes2022 Classes
Beginners 1Beginners 1
Ballet FundamentalsBeginners 2
Beginners 2Beginners 3
Level 1Level 1
Level 2Level 2
Level 3-
Class Card2021 Price2022 Price
Trial card$25$25
8 Class card$170$180
16 Class card$320$340

All class cards are valid for 6 months from date of purchase, and should you wish to purchase an 8 or 16 class card in the remainder of 2021, you will still enjoy the current prices. The last day of classes will be held on 22 Dec 2021, and classes will resume on 3 Jan 2022.

We hope you will continue to enjoy attending ADC, as we continue to provide classes in a safe environment for all.

The class will be open-ended and the transition to Beginners 2 can occur once you feel prepared.

A classical dance form demanding highly developed technique. Ballet is best known for its virtuoso techniques such as multiple pirouettes and grand allegro, grand pas de deux, and high leg extensions. Ballet aims to improve posture, flexibility and grace through barre and centre work.

Beginners 2

Suitable for adults who have completed Beginner 1 or have at least 6 months of previous ballet experience. These non-syllabus classes build upon the Beginner 1 basics of ballet at barre and centre, developing previous knowledge as well as introduce more steps, new positions and movement vocabulary.

Level 1

Level 1 dancers will begin class with floor stretches specific to developing strength in their feet.  Dancers will then go to the ballet barre and learn basic steps and positions, which will be combined to create simple combinations.  They will be taught about maintaining correct posture, which in ballet, involves everything from the feet up through the top of the head.  After leaving the barre, dancers will continue stretching, working the hamstrings, calves, quadriceps, and back muscles. Dancers will attempt new jumps and execute them with more repetition.

Level 2

Level 2 dancers will begin class with stretches in the center specific to strengthening the feet.  They will then go to the ballet barre to work on basic technique, as well as, learn more detailed combinations, involving port de bras (use of upper body, head, and arms).  Dancers will be encouraged to count the music and name the steps.  They will begin learning about turnout and correct body placement.  They will expand their repertoire of jumps in simple form at the barre.  Center work will consist of combining three or more steps and dancers will work to improve their turns through spotting and proper use of the arms.  Corner work will combine two or more steps which travel across the floor.  They will learn the names of important muscles used in ballet and be given literature on anatomy for dancers.  Class time will be spent learning basic floor barre technique and stretching specific to the hamstrings, quadriceps, calves, and back muscles.

Level 3

Moving from Level 2 into Level 3 is a very large step and requires a love of ballet and the desire to advance in technique.  Dancers at this level will start class at the ballet barre to work on classical technique, executing combinations at different musical tempos and on different musical counts.  They will also build strength and learn how to put several steps together while smoothly transferring their weight and holding correct posture and body placement.  Dancers will add several new steps to their repertoire.

The difference between the classes are based on the details offered by the instructor in regards to executing proper ballet technique.  The higher the level, the more serious and structured the class will be.
