Since its inception in 2010, the M1-Frontier Danceland PULSE Programme has sought to identify and develop talent among dance enthusiasts in secondary school and tertiary institutions in Singapore. After undergoing a year of weekly training by Frontier Danceland’s company artists, the programme scholars then gain the opportunity to perform in LEAP, a culmination of the programme.
The three sold-out shows of LEAP 2017 saw a wide variety of pieces choreographed by company artists Adrian Skjoldborg, Joy Wang, Adelene Stanley, Daniel Navarro Lorenzo, Sammantha Yue and Faye Tan, which challenged the dancers both physically and mentally, providing an encouraging environment to apply the multitude of skills that they have been taught in the training programme. Some of the alumni members of the PULSE Programme also graced the stage in a piece choreographed by Artistic Director Low Mei Yoke.
