Modern Dance


Republic Polytechnic’s Modern Dance Group was formed in 2006. Brought together by a common passion for contemporary dance, the members synthesize movements and dance techniques into their performances.

Under the guidance of Jacky Ong and artistic direction by Zaini Tahir, the group has actively participated in a wide range of performances such as Republic Polytechnic’s Official Opening in 2007, Heritage Festival 2007, ASEAN Night 2006, Journey of the Youth Olympic Flame 2010, ExxonMobil Campus Concerts, Evocation 2010, Electric Dreams, Emblazon 2015 and The Next Wave by NUS Dance Ensemble in 2017.

Modern Dance is also featured annually in Momentum and MUSE, Republic Polytechnic’s two major dance platforms. These events provide opportunities for students to amass a wealth of exposure and experience in their showmanship and craft.

Bonded by the values of commitment, dedication, teamwork and self-discipline, the group explores and redefines the ever-evolving dance form of the contemporary and modern.
