A little more about us
First organised in 2013, We Will Dance is Singapore’s first 10-hour charity dance marathon. This year, we will be focusing on raising funds for educational causes. Besides the USP Student Assistance Fund, We Will Dance 2016 is looking to support institutions involved in educational-related causes, namely - Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (HOME), Autism Association (Singapore) and SPD (formerly Society for the Physically Disabled).
This year, we will be revamping our approach towards interacting with the community. “We Will Dance 2019” will incorporate three measures of intervention to achieve our core mission.
10 locations across Singapore!
We Will Dance 2019 features an unprecedented community roadshows segment that brings dance to the heartlands through game consoles suitable for dance games. Organised in heartland shopping malls in the span of 3 months (Jun - Aug), members of the public can expect to get a glimpse of what our Dance Marathon will be like, while having the chance to interact and listen to what our community partners have to share about their own aspirations and narratives in response to our tagline of “What do you dance for?”.
Spreading the joy of dance!
Students from secondary and pre-tertiary educational institutions will be invited to dance alongside our community partners at our partnered dance studios. Dance sessions with our community partners are conducted by artists of the local dance scene. Catered specifically to the needs of the community partners, these sessions bring the joy of dancing and an alternative fun-filled workout right to our community partners' doorsteps. Student volunteers will also be actively involved in the dance sessions, thus creating meaningful interactions between the younger generation and our community partners' clients through dance.
The fun wouldn't be completed without a carnival!
