Creative Movement By Ren Yi
When: Sundays 10-11am
Where: Free Movement Dance Studio
For: Children 2-4 years old
Our First Dance Lessons is designed to provide pre-school children a safe and fun platform to express themselves through dance.
This class focuses mainly on helping young dancers develop a stronger body-awareness and a richer movement vocabulary. Creativity is cultivated through the exploration of the infinite possibilities of how music can be translated and expressed through dance. This will give young dancers a solid foundation and the confidence to take on any style of dance they might choose to focus on in the future.
About Ren Yi
Ren Yi is a multi-faceted dance artist and a dance educator with a passion for working with young children. She was born and raised in Shanghai where she was one of the first young ballerinas to be trained and mentored by the great ballet pioneer Wang Qifeng at the Wang Qifeng Ballet School in the early 90s.
Ren Yi moved to Singapore in 2003 to pursue her dance education at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA). After she graduated in 2006, she decided to stay on to nurture young dancers at the affiliated School Of Young Talents as a full-time ballet teacher for another 10 years.
Not only is Ren Yi a dedicated teacher, she is also a tireless student constantly seeking to expand herself in her art form and other related disciplines. She counts Antonio Vargas and Sofia Pratt as two of her most inspiring teachers, especially in the field of Spanish Dance and Flamenco.
