Emphasis in class will be on correct body alignment/placement, strength and flexibility, and providing formal training in the foundations of classical ballet.

Adult Ballet

We believe in keeping with the classical traditions in ballet and are committed to the aesthetics and appreciation of ballet as an art form. The adult ballet classes are non-syllabus classes and are taught by highly experienced RAD teachers. The class consists of traditional barre and center work taught in a disciplined, progression-oriented manner with attention given to both the technical and artistic aspects of dance.

Adult Pointe

Pointe work is an essential skill required for ballet dancers heading towards vocational grades and professional status. It is important that pupils contemplating pointe work are both mature and physically strong enough to attempt the complex skill to avoid injury. That is why at STSDS, we take great time and care in teaching our students pointe work, guaranteeing their safety and gradual progression, developing strength and technique.

These classes are based on the ISTD syllabus and are ideal for students who wish to pursue a versatile and all-round training. Dancing to chart hits or jazz classics these classes are perfect for fitness, confidence and enjoyment.


Contemporary dance is a form of dance which focuses on the serious expression of inner emotions, using a free-flowing, interpretive style, rather than following the rigid rules characteristic of many dance disciplines. Many of its concepts come from the ideas and innovations of 20th century modern dance, including floorwork and turn-in of the legs. This intro to contemporary dance technique class introduces total beginners to the world of contemporary dance and self-expression drawing upon elements of contemporary technique in a structured, progressive, incremental curriculum. Students can expect to improve balance, posture and alignment, through movement sequences and technical exercises that develop over the course period.

Adult Street

These classes provide the beginning of formal training, taught slowly and carefully to help you build your basic skills giving you a solid foundation, ideal for people who’ve never danced before. Choreography classes focus on teaching the underlying foundation of a dance style. They break down the movements and utilize drills to instill these movements in your muscle memory.

Hip Hop Freestyle

If you have never danced before or tried Hip Hop, this is your class. You will learn the basic skills that prepare you to move ahead with more complex combinations. This cumulative series incorporates a combination of energetic and clean moves for dancers who would like to learn the real flow of hip hop. You will learn new techniques and new moves on a regular basis that will enhance your dancing skills and gain a better understanding of the music, body co-ordination and step variation.

Hip Hop Choreography is devoted entirely to the fundamentals of hip hop while learning a choreography routine by the end of each month. You will learn new techniques and new moves on a regular basis that will enhance your dancing skills and gain a better understanding of the music, body co-ordination and step variation. These classes are exclusively for adults, with exciting choreography.

New School Choreography

New School is a mix of clean, up-to-date moves based on hip hop, house, jazz, tap, locking and popping. The style differs from the underground hip hop with advanced rhythm, plastic, elegant manner and borrowed from jazz elements. Dancers are meant to look like they’re unwinding, unraveling and floating. Expect isolations (especially of the chest), slow, fluid movements (like gliding and body waves) and contemporary-inspired turns (but not pirouettes).

Urban Choreography

Urban choreography classes are designed to teach students a sequence of specified urban-style movements, many of these can be seen in the mainstream media and music videos. Students are taught to employ emotion into their movement. Be ready for a good brain workout and be sure to pick up some cool moves in this class!

Kpop Boys

Each week, we’ll be bringing you hot new music and new dances to keep you excited and working hard when you dance to the likes of BEAST, 2NE1, Super Junior, Big Bang, SHINee and many more.

Girl’s Hip Hop

Girl’s Hip Hop is a fluid and more feminine interpretive version of new style hip-hop most often danced to downtempo rap music or R&B music. It is commanly described as “hip-hop with emotion”. Expect isolations (especially of the chest), slow, fluid movements (like gliding and body waves) and contemporary-inspired turns (but not pirouettes). There’s popping, but not the hard-hitting kind. Dancers are meant to look like they’re unwinding, unraveling and floating.

Girl’s Style

Find the girl inside and learn to embrace this side of you in our Girl’s style class! If Hip hop is too masculine for you and you prefer a more feminine quality in the choreography, this is the class for you! The basics of Girl’s style might be the same as that in Hip Hop (bounces, isolation and grooving are still important!) but this class focuses on the techniques critical to executing a more girly style!

Street Jazz

Street Jazz (also called jazz funk) is a hybrid of hip-hop and jazz dance. Although it borrows from hip-hop dance, it is not considered a style of hip-hop because the foundational movements are jazz. Combining both basic technical jazz elements and hip-hop, these classes help you learn all the moves performed by these top pop artists.

Kpop Girls

Passionate about Korean pop culture but prefer the more girly and sexy style? This all-girls class is intended for gals with a burning desire to dance. Not for the faint-hearted, this class is tailored to bring out the diva in you. Expect sassy and sexy moves to energized beats as you dance to the latest pop music each week. Comfortable heels required.

Heels Dance

Bring your favorite pair of heels, your sexiest dance attire, and your sassy attitude! This class is designed for students to discover the secrets to strutting in heels with confidence. Students will learn the basic technique of dancing in heels while embracing their femininity. The choreography will focus on grooves, lines, floor work and a few hair whips to become fierce, flirty, and comfortable dancing in heels. Class will build on the SAME PIECE of choreography over 4-6 weeks.

Adult Social

Known for its sensual body movement and sexy flair, Latin dance is gaining popularity on dance floors everywhere. Movies about Latin dancing, ones that portray the beauty of the art of Latin dancing, seem to be favorites among dancers and non-dancers alike. Besides being a staple in the ballroom, many Latin dances are also being taken to country-western dance floors. Learning Latin dances is fairly easy, as most of the dances are made up of the same basic foot steps. Some of the styles offered are partner dance styles. However, you don’t need a partner to attend as partner’s rotate during each lesson. Enjoy the opportunity to meet people in a safe environment with professional dance instructors in a modern air-conditioned venue.


SALSA DANCING IS COMPLETELY INCLUSIVE AND IS SUITABLE FOR ANYONE REGARDLESS OF AGE, OR LEVEL OF ABILITY. So much more than just dance classes, Salsa is a great way to stay fit, meet new people, make friends, challenge yourself and discover a passion you did not know you had! Work on your balance, coordination, fitness levels and fluidity of movement – all while having fun! Whether you have no experience at all or have taken a couple of Salsa classes, this beginner’s course is perfect for you. For those who feel they have ‘two left feet’, you will discover that you do have a right foot after all!

Dance Brightening a Dark, Hazy Year in Malaysia – Critics Republic

‘Becoming King’, in its second incarnation, by Joseph Gonzales, performed by ASWARA Dance Company. Photo: Timi Banzon

Review by Joelle Jacinto

The works I remember the most from 2015 were works that I saw more than once, having been developed over time, and staged again within the year. Rathimalar Govindarajoo and January Low’s ‘rehab’, Lee Ren Xin’s B.E.D., JS Wong’s ‘After Dark,’ and Raziman Sarbini’s ‘Dikir’ are all top of my mind, as well as Jack Kek’s A Wanderer in Berlin, obviously because I performed in it, and Joseph Gonzales’ do-over of Becoming King, not only because it was one of the last dance shows I saw in 2015, but because it became the show it should have been from the beginning. These works struck me aesthetically, intellectually, and even emotionally, more than most of the work I saw this year.

What is striking about this shortlist, and dance in Kuala Lumpur in general, is that not one work is like the other and this reflects how I see Malaysia as a country – diverse, ever-evolving, majestic, real. Any of these works could be handed to someone asking, ‘What is contemporary dance in Malaysia like?’ and still have the asker wanting more.

For choreographers to have a chance to rework their pieces and present them again has always made sense to me, even when this does not work out for the better. I have qualms about the development of Raziman’s ‘Dikir,’ rejoicing in some changes, but disappointed in others. That said, I would not tell audiences to skip it: despite my minor issues with Raziman’s decision-making, I recommend ‘Dikir’ as a must-see. This reminds me of Mohd Fauzi Amirudin’s ‘Stalemate,’ which is always different whenever I see it, and though he may remove and replace elements that I previously loved, it does not make me love the work less. How the choreographer chooses to evolve his work is just as interesting to me as closure, perhaps more interesting sometimes. Fauzi’s newer works, ‘Shadow’ and ‘Face It,’ presented with ‘Stalemate’ at the ASWARA Blackbox in April, were not as impressive and well-designed, which only makes me wonder if these new works will also mature over time and restaging.

There is also merit to restaging a work. I actually liked ‘rehab’ so much the first time I saw it that I recommended Rathimalar to choreograph for University Malaya’s UMa Dance showcase in May 2015, from which she produced ‘Sync’ for four contemporary dancers with some background in classical Indian dance. For Tepak Tari, the MyDance Alliance showcase held in September 2015, she presented ‘reborn,’ which felt like a prequel to ‘rehab,’ because in the end, she and January Low remove their short black dresses and change into the white tunics they wear in ‘rehab’. Between the three, I still like ‘rehab’ the best. It is slow moving, but one never tires of it.

And there is merit to changing work completely. I call Ren Xin’s mattress works, including B.E.D., a ‘series,’ because I do not think of them as one piece that is evolving, but rather separate works that all have in common a bunch of mattresses adapting to the site. The ideas never seem to stop flowing, nor repeating themselves, and if Ren Xin wished to make another mattress piece, I would still go see it.

And I would see the next version of JS Wong’s ‘After Dark’, which I feel best displays his choreographic gifts and skill, while coaxing him out of his comfort zone of relying on dancers’ technique over other choreographic elements. JS surprised by manipulating props within his choreography, but also going darker than he has ever been, both literally and metaphorically. Already sinister from the clever use of a handheld oil lamp as the main source of lighting, the manipulation of straw mats to hide and reveal those things that go bump in the night, as well as swallow you alive, raised more than goosebumps from its unwitting audience. JS is currently working on a full-length version for staging in 2016.

Speaking of stepping outside comfort zones, despite being known for his sentimental and sweet duets, Jack Kek produced A Wanderer in Berlin, a dark full-length work that begins with the breaking down of the Berlin wall and reeks of the loneliness of six strangers trying to find a connection in an unfamiliar city. The ennui is further heightened by the drone-like music of German composer Christoph Waltz, who actually provided a place to stay for Jack when he was in Berlin, and was key to the choreographer’s understanding of the city and its history. These elements of place and displacement added a new dimension to Jack’s usually quirkily complicated duets.. Happier was his ‘Safety in Numbers’ for UMa Dance Company, premiered in May, which was also about finding courage by being with other people, and also not typically Jack-like as it was not about romantic love.

In a way, 2015 was definitely about choreographers spreading their wings, with young choreographers being braver about producing work. Gelombang Baru is ASWARA’s student choreographic platform and, aside from ‘Dikir’, showed promising work from Imran Syafiq, Maria Devonne Escobia, and Syed Haziq Aziq. Aside from the Short & Sweet Festival, the newly launched InspiRaasi Space put up a platform for the Young Choreographers Project, encouraging work from fresh minds like Rozilah Abdul Rahman, Andrew Igai Jamu, Bryan Omega David and Sharm Noh. Although not a very ideal stage for performance, InspiRaasi at least provides an alternative venue for emerging choreographers, with a mixed-bill for Nadhirah Razid and Syaffiq Hambali last December.

Many choreographers opted to disturb rather than please this 2015, as in Lau Beh Chin’s ‘Speaking To…’ which, despite uncomfortable scenes of struggle and abuse, still touchingly dealt with memory and family. Maria Devonne Escobia’s ‘Knowing,’ from Gelombang Baru, was not the best new work from that evening, but it was the one you remembered. The choreographer-dancer devoted herself to her craft, going so far as to burn her hands with hot candle wax during the performance. In Toccata Studio’s ‘2020,’ Steve Goh and Ng Chor Guan presented alternate universes folding into each other with the aid of Chor Guan’s theremin and astounding lighting effects by PC Sei.

A lot of 2015’s disturbing work was political in nature, reflecting how Malaysia has been increasingly vexed and frustrated by political earthquakes. Suhaili Micheline and Faillul Adam’s ‘Nasi Ekonomi’ at Tepak Tari was so absurd that you start chuckling when you realise what it is parodying, with an energy crackling in the air, like a challenge. Also at Tepak Tari, Amy Len’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ for her Kwang Tung Dance Company featured dozens of balloons to extend the message of justice and democracy from Bersih a few weeks earlier; perhaps further inspired by Tepak Tari’s curator Bilqis Hijjas, the now infamous balloon girl. Amy’s later collaboration with Naoto Katori from Japan for DPAC’s D’Motion Festival was also quite dark and aggressive, despite being about a ‘Game.’ While Bersih was happening in KL, TerryandTheCuz and Ashley Dyer presented Sk!n at the Georgetown Festival in Penang, offering the full refugee experience of being smuggled to groups of unsuspecting audiences, who were quite shaken up by either being measured and weighed, then interviewed and segregated, blindfolded and led pointlessly around the streets of Penang, or closed up into a shipping container and driven around in the dark. The dancing by JS Wong and Suhaili Micheline added to the full disturbing effect.

ASWARA’s Jamu was also teeming with social context, particularly Joseph Gonzales’ ‘Tanah Pusaka,’ Wong Kit Yaw’s ‘Time Asking,’ and Murni Omar’s ‘Salam’, but perhaps none yet as impactful as James Kan’s ‘Utopia,’ a staple in ASWARA’s repertoire, restaged this year at the Kluang Festival in Johor in April, and in Three Faces in Singapore and KL in September and October, respectively.

But almost as much as there was dark, disturbing work in 2015, there were also several colorful, beautiful, bright celebrations of Malaysian culture: Mamad Samsuddin’s Intersection of old and new works that showed various curious aspects of Malaysian life, ASWARA’s Hang Li Po and Aduh! Seroja, Temple of Fine Arts’ Reflections and the particularly outstanding NeoMargam by Shankar Kandasamy, Mythical Oriental Dance Company’s The Mythical Journey, UPSI’s Gema Silapin by Hamid Chan, Dua Space’s The Tree, and UMa Dance Company’s The Journey by Bai Jin. The Journey relates the Chinese exchange student’s journey to Malaysia from her hometown Yunnan, China. The work is about coming to a new country and having her world open up by leaps and bounds, represented by the contrast between the traditional Chinese dance drills that open the work and the contemporary explorations that tell the rest of the story. It is a love letter, if you will, a thank you for the last seven years that she has called Malaysia home, and while the audience would need context to fully understand it, once they do, understanding quickly turns into appreciation.

I count Bai Jin’s work as Malaysian, though local choreographers did not lack opportunities to work on international collaborations. There was the NY-KUL Building Bridges workshop week that was brilliantly organised by visiting Tisch-NYU scholar Fairul Zahid, as well as UMa Dance Company’s week in Bacolod to attend the CMAP Choreographers Festival in the Philippines, Un Yamada’s workshop with ASWARA (which inspired the inclusion of 5 Malaysian dancers in a double-bill this year), and the very touching open rehearsal of the reunion show of Yuri Ng’s ‘Boy’s Story,’ featuring five Malaysian dancers who once danced this work in Hong Kong and Taiwan in their youth, namely Ong Yong Lock, Jay Jen Loo, Aman Yap, Wong Thien Pau, and Lim Chee Keat. Although the choreographer teased Aman Yap for breathing too hard after the rehearsal, it was clear that these were dancers who excelled in their craft, whether in their youth or their prime, and are inspirations to new generations of Malaysian dancers who should follow their lead.

There are many gorgeous dancers in Malaysia today, and I am quite honoured to see them dance this year – January and Rathimalar in ‘rehab’ and ‘return,’ JS Wong in Amy Len’s ‘The Game’, JS and Suhaili Micheline in Sk!n, Suhaili in Dua Space Dance Theatre’s Men and Women. Well, actually all the Dua Space dancers in Suhaili’s section of Men and Women and in the full length The Tree, but especially Lim Hong Jie and Kenny Leow. The duet that Jack Kek made for Matt Tan and Leo Yap in A Wanderer in Berlin always had me running to the wings to watch; I like it better than even my own duet with Jack, and feel that both boys surpassed themselves in this performance.

Hanaa Tan was given a sensitive solo in Kyson Teo’s ‘Traces’; and Lee Ren Xin impressed me in the first iteration of JS Wong’s ‘After Dark.’ Leng Poh Gee seems to know how exactly to show off his former students in‘We Have Auditioned,’ featuring talented girls who should be dancing more: Lim Hooi Meng, Adeline Chew, Lim Shin Hui, Tan Shioa Por, Joyce Chan and Sha Yina. Someone else who should be dancing more is Chan Kean Yew, whose gifts were displayed in Rathimalar’s ‘Sync’. Of course, as their instructor I try to give the UMa Dance Company dancers more opportunities to dance, and I’m gleeful when they prove me right.

But I have favourites in other groups too. I have been entranced by UPSI’s Hidayah Hayon since I saw her in Nurulakmal Abdul Wahid’s ‘She Simply Disappears…’ and she just shines from her line in the large UPSI ensemble. My favouritism of Ruby Wahid is now well-known, even before my campaigning for her in ‘Becoming King,’ but I’ve come to appreciate other ASWARA dancers as well: Kimberly Yap Choy Hoong and Imran Syafiq outstanding in their bharatanatyam PeTa performance and in 3 Faces; Naim Syaharazad Zin in Fauzi Amirudin’s ‘Face It,’ Murni Omar in Naim’s ‘Reborn,’ and Maria Devonne Escobia in Yunus Ismail’s ‘When Eve Ate The Apple’. Pengiran Khairul Qayyum was a particular standout in everything I saw him in, especially ‘Hang Li Po’, Imran Syafiq’s ‘Cradle,’ Raziman’s pre-Dikir work, and in Mamad Samsuddin’s ‘Gojet’ and ‘Polis Entri’. No surprise he got chosen for the Asian Dance Company project in Seoul and for Un Yamada’s ‘one◆piece’.

That’s a lot of dancers, you may be saying, but yes, there are a lot of dancers in KL, and a lot of good dancing too. 2015 may have been a turbulent year for Malaysia, but the dancing will continue. I already look forward to 2016.

Anniversary Concert FLORES | kdc-izhorskiy

On February 14, 2020, on the stage of the theater and concert hall of St. Petersburg State Budgetary Institution “CDC” Izhorskiy “, an anniversary evening of the Flores contemporary dance theater dedicated to its 20th anniversary was held.

All this time, the permanent leaders of the collective are Tatyana Vladimirovna Semchenkova and Pavel Alexandrovich Datsyuk, who created one of the most numerous and famous dance associations in the Kolpinsky district of St. Petersburg, known far beyond its borders.

“Twenty Moments for an Encore” – the name of the concert speaks for itself: during the festive event were shown the most favorite dance numbers and excerpts from musicals of recent years.

The hall was full, the audience, along with the dancers, moved at lightning speed in time and space. From the vivid performances of the musical “Love Through Time”, passing through the eras, the audience plunged into the book world of Russia in the 18th century, having again seen an excerpt from the choreographic drama “Masquerade”.Then, giving himself and those sitting in the hall a little respite, “Flores” suggested recalling the musical “Mary Poppins”, which was suddenly replaced by one of his favorite performances – “Pirates of the Caribbean”. The theatrical and musical section ended with an excerpt from the 2019 production “Urfin Deuce and the Secret Kingdom”.

Numerous changes of scenery, thousands of costumes and dozens of dance genres, combined with acting and plasticity, allowed Flores to embody a grandiose idea on stage – to combine several full-fledged performances and the best performances of the group in recent years.

All the dancers of the collective took part in the three parts of the concert – from preparatory groups (4-6 years old) to adult dancers of show ballet. In total, more than 300 people performed on the stage. We were especially proud of the presence and participation in the event of friends and eminent colleagues of “Flores”, with whom the team had many creative projects. Among the guests of the evening were Honored Artists of Russia Vladimir Samsonov and Andrei Matveev, theater and cinema artist Andrei Noskov, participants in the Dancing on TNT and Everybody Dance projects Elena Energy, Pavel Ryabov and Mikhail Evgrafov, as well as the Variety Symphony Orchestra, accompanied by which took place the first part of the anniversary evening.

Platform Project, SounDrama Studio and Theater Solutions present OS – Announcements



Soundrama based on the novel by Choderlos de Laclos “Dangerous Liaisons”

January 14 and 15 at 20.00 PLATFORM

  • Choreographer: Sergei Zemlyansky
  • Set Designer: Maxim Oberzkov
  • Costume Design: Katerina Levina
  • Music: SounDrama Studio, Henri Purcell
  • Musical Director: Pavel Akimkin
  • The play includes: Alina Olshanskaya, Alisa Estrina, Seseg Hapsasova,
  • Polina Pshindina, Ekaterina Kislova, Olga Terekhun, Andrey Samoilov,
  • Evgeny Sangadzhiev / Andrey Merkuriev.

“OS” – a new project by SounDrama Studio. It is based on the provocative novel by Choderlos de Laclos “Dangerous Liaisons” – a novel in letters, where in the foreground is not the action of the hero, but the state of his soul, where the reality of the event is combined with fantasy.

Like other performances in the soundrama genre, “OS” is based on combining different types of art – theater, music, dance, but in this production the emphasis shifts towards sound plastics. The play by Sergei Zemlyansky, the leading choreographer of the studio’s projects, grows out of scraps of letters from the characters of the novel by Chaderlo de Laclos, plastics, movement and music:

“The goal of the project is not to make a dance performance in its purest form, but to try to expand the very concept of dance, which includes the dance of eyelashes, hands, face, speech, and the goal is not to multiply the movements, but to experiment in this area.”

Sergei Zemlyansky combined in his performance a live performance of Henry Purcell’s arias with modern electronic music, as well as dance genres – modern dance and classical ballet, represented by Andrei Merkuriev, soloist of the Bolshoi Theater, invited to the role of Viscount de Valmont.

The costume designer for the performance was Katerina Levina, a young designer working under the KL brand, based in London and St. Petersburg.Katerina created her collection “Interlude” autumn-winter 2011-2012 within the framework of the project “OS”, the concept of which, like the performance, is built on the idea of ​​the relationship of a modern person with society, on how society sees a person as he is. he is often unable to see himself, about the inner trap into which he drives himself.

The idea of ​​the fashion show is also at the heart of the scenography of Maxim Obrezkov – a long catwalk, glitter of spotlights, convention of movements. The entire production appears as a game created and well played by the main characters with deliberately calculated moves, where the battlefield is the inner world of each of them.
