PATAS DANCE CLUB

PDC is an art of self-expression for children between 3 – 17 years old who have a passion / interest in dancing. We believe in nurturing children to dance genres on modern and contemporary dances.

Dancing is not just about rehearsing steps, it includes musicality, movement, creativity and recognition, dancing is another great way to ameliorate open motor skills, coordination and working memory.

Through interacting with fellow young dancers and learning new choreographies at our club, we believe that your child will gain confidence, make new friends and discover the joy of dancing.

‘Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body,’ Martha Graham.
