Giselle is here. Singapore steps into dance in a big way

Steps to Dance Leadership. Besides the wonderful ballet “Giselle”, which is coming all the way from the most ancient opera house in the world, Teatro Di San Carlo, Naples, Italy, this month, Singapore is securing its place as the Asian regional hub for the diverse dance practices from the East and the West. There’s much afoot from Stephanie Burridge, with books, talks and teaching, which we learned all about at the recent NAC research forum and from Helen Musa in Canberra, plus the excellent dance tradition being fostered at LASALLE College of the Arts – seen in the brightest of foot-lights in the latest “Chorus Line” production. We also caught up recently with former NAC leading light Chin Choy Liew, who’s now the Company Manager for Frontier Danceland, telling us all about its monumental May production.
