Yuhua Indian Dance is a vibrant team of dancers with the passion to dance. Coming from backgrounds of various levels of dance knowledge, our members are committed to work cohesively to learn the art of Indian Dance in fun and exciting ways, to pursue the passion for the Art. With the choreography and training from our instructor Mdm Vijaya, our dancers progressively develop themselves as indian dancers over the years, learning various techniques in classical, contemporary and folk indian dance. At the same time, other vibrant forms of indian dance, like Bollywood and Bhangra are also explored.
With dedication, determination and discipline, our Indian Dance student leaders work very well together with all our members to nuture a caring and supportive environment for our members to practice and develop in. With these support from capable student leaders, a creative and caring instructor and teachers in charge, we are looking forward to excellence in our future.

Our dancers also had the once in a lifetime opportunity to get their talent showcased on TV! The TV show “Singapore Supersized” showcases local talents and the evolution of the Arts in Singapore. Yuhua Indian Dancers, as well as their Malay dance and Chinese Dance counterparts appeared on the 6 th episode of the TV show, after just 3 days of training from the renowned choreographer, Gani Karim. As much as they were thrilled to be given the opportunity, they also learnt a lot from Gani Karim himself on how to infuse modern dance styles into our traditional dances.
Heritage Festival Performance in Plaza Singapura
Our dancers also took the opportunity to showcase their SYF Dance in Plaza Singapura during the Singapore Heritage Festival. The Saturday lunch time performance gave the opportunity for our dancers to present their dance as part of a larger Yuhua family, with other SYF performances namely from the Chinese and Malay dances and the Concert and Harmonica Band.

The most recent contribution to the community came from our dancers’ during their June school holidays to come up with their own dance sequence. This time, the dancers have attempted to fuse indian dance with an Arabic song. This gave our dancers the opportunity to explore and expand their creativity and produce what solely belonged to them!performance for National Day in Jurong Spring Community Centre. The students took the time and put in tremendous effort
