K-pop Stars

Afro Brazilian

Afro Brazilian (Dança dos Orixas) comprise dances at celebrations in honour of the Orixas, which are gods often linked to the forces of nature and are the foundation of Brazilian culture. Through storytelling and movement, discover the Orixas and their vast stories. Participants will learn their traits through movements as they uncover their tales.


Movement Improvisation

Using contact-based dance and play, this dance class by Rolypoly Family will have both children and grown-ups having fun through movement, music, massage and upside-down silliness! Rooted in the principles of partnership across generations, safe physical contact and movement improvisation, this class will see children and grown-ups taking turns to lead and follow, push and pull, lean and support.


This programme is presented as part of da:ns focus – EveryBody, a weekend of dance with inclusivity, diversity and participation, where we encourage everybody and every body to experience dance.


This workshop is specially designed for young ones aged 6-12 years old. Each child must be accompanied by an adult. Accompanying adult must be 16 years old and above.

About the instructor, Stepharina
