Aesthetics Development Programme
Secondary Two Ethnic Dance Programme
The Aesthetics Development Programme aims to provide an avenue for students to develop and display their interests for the arts. Through a structured yet versatile programme, the students gain exposure to diverse art forms and are provided with various platforms to showcase their talents. The onset of this year marked an opportunity for all Secondary Two Kranjians to be involved in a twelve week Ethnic Dance Fusion Programme. They learnt dance techniques from qualified and skilled dance instructors. In addition, the routines that were taught were unique to each of the four major ethnic groups in Singapore – namely Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian, making this a truly exceptional experience for the students.
Reflection by Student:
At first I heard from many friends that they did not like dance and neither did I. I was just not interested in dance. But the programme changed our minds. Everyone enjoyed it because the instructors taught us more than just dance. They taught us life skills such as resilience and perseverance through the lessons. This is because the dance moves were not easy to remember and pull off initially.

Kranji Kaleidoscope 2017 – Combined Performing Arts Concert
Our four Performing Arts groups ― Symphonic Band, K-Productions Drama, Choir and Dance ― participated in a combined concert, Kaleidoscope, at the NUS Cultural Centre on June 3, 2017. The objective was two-fold. The first was to provide our students with a platform to showcase their works to the public. The second was to help our youths develop a deeper understanding of their shared heritage and values. It was an exciting fusion of choreographed performances, reflecting the long hours and conscientious efforts put in by our students. The concert was highly entertaining as it showcased a combination of aesthetic talents, musical flair and the alluring charisma of each performer. Kranji Got Talent performers and Ethnic Fusion Dance performers (2K1 and 2K2) presented an electrifying dance performance. Without a doubt, this year’s performance was one with a difference, providing a varied and multi-coloured lens of celebrating the arts, making the name ‘Kaleidoscope’ a very appropriate one for the concert indeed.
