First and foremost, I really have to apologize for not posting anything for the past few months. I was really bogged down with school, work and my other events. Now that I finally have some breather time, here’s a quick write up on one of two dance projects that I have been working on the past 2 months.

During the month of July and August, I had been spending most of my Sunday mornings with the awesome girls from Scarlet. Scarlet is an all-girl dance group that is part of the Singapore Buddhist Mission(SBM) Resonation Concert 2013. I had been approached in June by their Executive Producer, Alvin Yeo, to come down and mentor the girls as Dance Co-ordinator for the 8 girls.

Over the many Sunday mornings, the girls would work on their choreography and my job would be to tweak and mentor the girls. I must say their progress was really astounding. This was considering that half of them are still studying in various Junior Colleges and the other half had full-time jobs. Sunday practices were not even held at a proper studio!  What made working  with them an even greater joy was the fact that they were so open to learning.

I was also very privileged to have my friend all the way from the States, Josette, to drop in on one of the rehearsals to help the girls out. Josette is a choreographer for Rhythm and Motion (R&M), a student dance group from Bryn Mawr College. Having her there helped the girls from a technical point of view as well as bringing a fresh perspective to their dance item.

It goes without saying that on the day of the concert, the girls were a nothing short of amazing. I was very proud of the performance that they did for the 1000-odd audience at the Republic Cultural Centre. The people behind the SBM were a joy to work with and I’m definitely looking forward to our next collaborative effort.
