Dream big, dance

School is out, but that doesn’t mean kids have to stop learning or being creative. Summer vacation is fast approaching.

It’s that time of the year when we want our kids to enhance their skills and talents, to learn something new and continue to grow by enrolling them in summer classes.

It will not only keep them busy, but also foster new friendships and continuously develop their talents as well.  

Imagine a total of 1600 sqm of studio space, well-established ballet syllabus, highly experienced and award winning teachers, and an atmosphere that is filled with love and passion for dance.

Young ballerinas can hone their skills this summer through Halili-Cruz School of Dance ballet programs
