Your Journey Starts Here.

Available for all dancers at any level of their dance.

The Residential Dance Programme (RDP) is Artistate’s core programme built for its in-house students. The RDP is made of different levels for students to grow progressively, with each level of the programme running for an academic year (full year).

Programme Objective

The Residential Dance Programme (RDP) is catered for both new and seasoned dancers alike with one or two different levels to choose from.
RDP provides students with valuable insights and techniques spanned across a progressive learning curve, giving them sufficient time to fully absorb, understand and execute the skills and knowledge imparted to them through the programme. RDP also aims for students to develop good training habits and values outside of the studio to take home, with weekly sessions specially catered for RDP students in the studio.
Through the dance programme, Artistate aims to build a strong and close-knit network with our students. Providing platforms and avenues such as dedicated weekly sessions for our students to reach their goals and express themselves through the art form.

Levels of the Residential Dance Programme

As the RDP is a highly structured programme, it is essential that there are different levels of the programme where students are funnelled to based on their skill level, experience and grasp of dance skills and knowledge on the subject.

There are 2 levels to the RDP, namely:

Level 1 – For students who have zero to just over a year of dance experience. This level focuses on exposing students to the dance genre and educating them on pivotal knowledge within the dance. Building their foundation, understanding basic movements and acquiring the correct techniques are some factors that are essential for progressing as a dancer.

Level 2 – For students who have 2 – 4 years of dance experience. This level focuses on the execution of advanced steps and movements within the dance. Students are taught how to engage in the creative process of curating original variations and steps unique to their craft whilst applying movements to the music and beat. This level also touches on advanced concepts that would increase the students depth of understanding in the artform.

Level 2 – For students who have 2 – 4 years of dance experience. This level focuses on the execution of advanced steps and movements. Students are challenged to engage in the creative process of curating original variations and steps unique to their vocabulary, along with advanced concepts to deepen their understanding of their dance.

At the end of the RDP term, students will undergo a progression review of the syllabus taught in the term, graded by all faculty members.
After which, students will receive a performance report book of how well they have executed the term’s syllabus, along with personalised feedback from the faculty on what can be worked on for each individual student.
We believe by doing so, dancers can further boost their clarity on what they excel in and what needs to be worked on to be at their best potential.
