Through The Years
This free dance workshop is for all in the family, from grandparents to parents and children. Held at Ang Mo Kio Community Centre, attendees will learn dances of different styles, including rock-and-roll from the 1970s, disco dance steps from the 1980s and hip-hop moves from recent times. The event is part of Got to Move, a nationwide dance movement initiated by the National Arts Council to grow appreciation and participation in dance in Singapore. Details here.
