Got to Move (GTM) is back and better than ever. Organised by the National Arts Council, the annual movement to celebrate Singapore’s dance scene will get people on their feet with over 200 free dance programmes and activities taking place across various parts of the island.
Dance is for everyone, and GTM is a great way for anyone to get acquainted with a variety of moves, even those new to dance. Whether you appreciate performances and exhibitions, talks or workshops, there is something for everyone. The broad range of programmes caters to just about anybody, from children and families to young adults and seniors.
Taking place in October, GTM 2016 is into its second year of celebrating the diversity and vibrancy of Singapore’s dance scene. Here’s a quick roundup.
Look out for the GTM REWARDS card at all programme locations and earn stamps for every GTM programme you attend. With just two stamps or more, you can redeem tickets to dance performances and classes, mall plus food and beverage vouchers, as well as other prizes.
The highlight of GTM 2016 will be the large-scale, signature programmes and activities taking place mostly over its three weekends. Watch out for events like GTM @ Civic District featuring an MP3-led activity involving 1,000 participants, interactive performance and artist booths, and A Slice in Time, a dance photography feature programme bringing together an exhibition, workshop, talks and performances. Experience a myriad of traditional and contemporary dance forms at GTM @ Tanjong Goodman at Goodman Arts Centre; or hop down to Bedok Town Square for Unlock and Roll, a dance activation event that’s all about bringing the community together to dance and unlock freebies!
Leap into the thick of things in the huge selection of free dance activities brought to you by Singapore’s dance community. Happening at various locations across the island, GTM ISLANDWIDE will feature the likes of Flamenco Sin Fronteras, Maya Dance Theatre, Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Dance Theatre, Tap Dance Singapore, and more.
Got to Move 2016 takes place 7-23 October. For updates, visit www.facebook.com/gottomovesg or follow them on Instagram @GotToMoveSG.
EVERYBODY MOVE! From contemporary to classical, Got to Move celebrates the diversity of Singapore’s vibrant dance scene.
