The Crestar

Talent Development: Crestar School of Dance

The Scholarship (Crestar Young Talent) Programme gathers talented students and put them through intensive training to become star performers in their field.

The programme aims to stretch able students with a customised curriculum that targets their learning needs and goes beyond the vocabulary (content) of the examination syllabi. Students will learn flexibly by executing combinations taught to them instantaneously. These combinations are adapted frequently to challenge them continually.

Students will be schooled to become thinking dancers capable of proactive learning, demonstrating good etiquette and a strong sense of discipline and commitment. In tandem with the development of strong foundational technique, students will be well poised to pursue dance at higher levels and in more specialised settings.
