LEAP marks the end of the scholars’ experience in the M1-Frontier Danceland PULSE Programme, a youth contemporary dance training and development initiative by Frontier Danceland.
The 11th edition of LEAP 2021 features a mixed bill of five original creations by PULSE programme coordinator Zhuo Zihao (Singapore), Frontier Danceland company artists Mark Robles (Philippines) and Tan Xin Yen (Malaysia), and guest choreographers Kay Lee, Keryn Ng Gek Theng and Neo Yan Zong (Singapore).
Two post-show dialogues will take place after the performance on 19 March 2021, 8pm and 20 March 2021, 3pm, where the choreographers and PULSE scholars will be in conversation about their creative processes.

Kindly note that:
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.
