What a year 2020 has been! There certainly has been many going-ons, but probably the most significant occurrence all year is the COVID-19 pandemic, which more or less brought the world to a halt across most industries, including dance. Dancers everywhere tried their best to keep spirits up and bodies limber by dancing at home, which is excellent innovation, but there’s nothing that beats dancing in a studio again! After three long months, dance studios in Malaysia were finally given the green light to resume operations, much to all the dancers’ joy! With that, we’re lending some support to some of the dance studios we managed to make contact with, and here they are!
1. Envision Dance
A dance studio located in Setia Alam, Envision Dance offers ballet classes following the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), UK. Starting off as a small operation with roughly 30 students, they have since expanded to now having more than 100 students. 90% of their students have achieved “Merit” and above in their examinations, and they are offering a free trial class for first-timers. They have since resumed operations in stages, starting with the older students. For more information or to book a trial class, get in touch with Envision Dance with the contact details below.
