OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION
DO I NEED TO AUDITION TO GET INTO THE CLUB?
No audition is required for SMU Ballare. Dancing is like walking. People always walk, right? If you are able to walk, you are able to dance too! SMU Ballare strongly believes that everyone can dance.
"Simply because this type of dance is not commonly seen nowadays. I wanted to learn something that is uncommon."
- Mah Min Hui, Joyce, School of Accountancy, Year 2
"To learn a new skill."
- Sun Ming, School of Computing and Information Systems, Year 3
There is no need to have any prior dance experience and we do not conduct auditions. In fact, most of our members did not have any dance experience upon joining us! Our mission is to make ballroom a part of everyone’s life, and we believe that anyone can enjoy ballroom dancing.
No, everyone will get an equal opportunity to pair up with a dance partner. At beginners level, we encourage our dancers to dance with all available partners. Our instructor will advise on your partnership but fret not as your opinions will be taken into consideration when we assign the partnerships.
Our students at advanced levels conduct the Friday training for the beginner batch. In addition, our dance instructor, Melyvn Low, 15th time undefeated South East Asian Champion, conducts Saturday training for all levels.
T-shirt with long pants. You will eventually get to own proper dance apparel and ballroom shoes at a highly subsidised price! You get to wear beautiful ball gowns (girls) and tailcoats (guys) for our competitions and performances.
Ballroom dancing experience
A unique and fun experience in learning a dance that’s rarely offered elsewhere!
Other than learning how to dance, you also get the chance to compete locally and internationally, as we have multiple competitions throughout the year.
You can partake in our annual productions as well, where you can take on secondary roles from event planning, choreography, operations to marketing. We welcome everyone into our SMU Ballare family c:
