Further your passion for performing while making some great friends
Think becoming a professional singer, dancer or actor is a pipe dream in Singapore? Then you might not have heard that NUSChoir took home the top prize at the prestigious Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod and was named “Choir of the World.” Or that many of our local theatre companies have been staging their original productions for audiences overseas.
For those of us no longer in school, we don’t have CCAs that will give us a chance to perform or compete even as we learn. But all is not lost! Many community interest groups and professional companies around Singapore invite members of the public who love to sing, dance or act to join them, even with little or no experience. More than your typical classes or workshops, these seven groups will take you out of the studio and onto the big stage, so you can experience the rush of performing before an audience.
