“The world is full of poetry. The air is living with its spirit; and the waves dance to the music of its melodies, and sparkle in its brightness.”
If you’ve ever sat quietly and observed the natural world around you for a minute or two you will have sensed the rustle of leaves, the roll of the waves, the songs of the birds and the patter of the rain. This is all part of the “dance of nature”, and we are all part of that dance.
Humans have been dancing since they first walked the earth and the natural world has always played a leading role – from Aboriginal dances to Swan Lake and beyond.
Dance is a celebration of the rhythm of life – and we all know the joy it brings when we are perfectly in step with it. Our dance teacher brings students in harmony with nature, with themselves, with the rhythm of the earth and life around them.
Attitude Performing Arts Studio is all about helping our students express this and delight in it. The Nature is a Dance concert celebrates the life around us, and inside all of us, and will feature a large variety of dances inspired by nature, choreographed by our experienced and creative teachers.
Through dance, our teachers will help to impart to students the power of the natural world, and their part in it, to engender a new appreciation, respect, and love for the environment, both in themselves and the audience.
The joy of dancers bringing their bodies perfectly in step with the music is a joy that nature achieves constantly, effortlessly and naturally. Nature is a Dance. Let’s join in!

The King of Almost Fairytale Land will be celebrating his 174th birthday in two weeks’ time. However, the King is in a foul mood because the readership of their storybooks has hit an all-time low. In a top-secret operation, code-named Humpty Dumpty, five main offenders have been rounded up: Cinderella, Prince Char-Mee, aspiring King of the Hokkien Mee empire, Jacky and the Beansprouts, a fast-talking taugeh (translation: beansprouts) businessman, Goldilocks and the Three Pears, and, Slow White and the Seven Dinosaurs.
To avoid being banished from Almost Fairytale Land, Cinderella, Prince Char Mee, Jacky, Goldilocks and Slow White have to work against time to put together a concert for the King’s birthday.
Prince Char-mee’s a rather resourceful man,
Ol’ Jacky may have magic beans in his hands,
Goldilocks might seek help from her friends – the three bears,
Slow White, however, would need more than three years.
Thirteen days have passed! Only one day to go!
How a fortnight has flown by, and still nothing to show!
In 24 hours, they are going to go,
Expelled! – to the land that is colder than snow.
From the Land of the Banished, there is no return.
Your covers are ripped, your pages are burned.
Will our heroes and heroines escape certain death?
From the way that things look, don’t hold your breath.
Featuring performances by the performing arts’ groups of St Margaret’s Primary School, as well as the Primary One and Two pupils, Almost Fairy Tales will bring you on a journey through real and imaginary lands. Are the characters doomed or will they escape their fate?

一 黄宏墨《挥墨放歌》演唱会 2016
Because there are songs yet to be sung,
Because there are words yet to be said,
Now is not the time to bid farewell yet…
– Mok & Friends 2016
Those who are familiar with Wong Hong Mok will know that the talented man is not one who likes to be in the constant spotlight. Besides his career as a commercial photographer and regular columnist for Lianhe Zaobao, it has been 3 years since Wong Hong Mok’s solo concert – “A Wild Man’s Dreams” in 2012 at the Esplanade Concert Hall. Mok (which he prefers to be called by) will never forget the moment in his concert where the entire audience stood up as they sang aloud, hand-in-hand and immersed themselves entirely in the music. Whenever he recalls that passionate moment, the thought “It’s not time to bid farewell” comes clearer to mind…
This time, Mok is back with a brand new concept and attitude for this concert. Going back to where it all begins, Mok would also be inviting 4 of his music buddies of 30 years, as well as 2 other like-minded special guests for this meaningful night. Aside from his classics, Mok will also be presenting his new songs that have yet to be heard live. Titled “Mok & Friends”, Mok seeks to deliver a very different concert from 2012 – less for himself and more for the gratitude he has for all friends (fans) whom has always been alongside him throughout his musical career.
Expect a night of heartfelt sincerity with a burst of spontaneity, unique to “Mok & Friends 2016”.

Teresa Teng Musical has been widely received and highly acclaimed by many since the start of its first show. Apart from boasting three controversial love stories, revealing for the first time her greatest regret, over twenty golden hits from the megastar’s famous repertoire, it also reminisces Teresa Teng’s most glorious moments including all of her happiness, anger, sorrow, and joy.

LA Comedy Live is proud to announce, three time Grammy and Emmy nominated comedian Margaret Cho will take the Kallang Theatre stage on Saturday, March 5, 2016 on her new “THE PSYCHO TOUR!”
Margaret Cho says, “I can’t believe I’ve never done a show in Asia – it’s really insane. Please join me on my first foray into Asia. I promise to make it a show we never ever forget!”
About the PSYCHO TOUR, Margaret Cho adds, “I’m so thrilled to announce that I will be back out on the road with an amazing new show! This show is about insanity, and about the anger I feel about everything happening in the world right now, from police brutality to racism to the rising tide of violence against women. It makes me so crazy hence the title: “THE PSYCHO TOUR” because there is no “I” in team but there is a “CHO” in psycho”. I’m trying to bring some joy to the hysteria and insanity. It’s great when you can take something that’s very tragic and turn it around. That’s what I am doing! Please join me in the madness!”
“Wildly Kinetic” – The New York Times
A big part of her show are tributes to her “father in comedy,” Robin Williams and her “mother in comedy,” Joan Rivers, who passed away within a month of one another. Margaret was very close to both of them; her friendship with Robin encouraged her to start the #BeRobin campaign to raise awareness and funds for the homeless community. Her friendship with Joan reinforced Margaret’s desire to remain fearless.
From singlehood to Boko Haram to Bruce Jenner’s transition to female empowerment (and a magical music performance), Margaret tackles difficult subjects with sensitivity and razor sharp insight. A pioneer amongst women in comedy, Margaret doesn’t take anything for granted. “It’s a wonderful thing to be known as a ‘safe haven’ for people who feel disenfranchised. The audience at my shows dont necessarily consider themselves traditional comedy fans. I seem to be a secure alternative for people who don’t think they’re being represented in society. They come because my point of view satisfies a lot of what needs to be said out there, and that makes me really proud.”
