Got to Move SPOTLIGHT 2018

28 October 2018, Sunday


​8:30AM - 12:00PM


GTM SPOTLIGHT is a dance carnival where the public can come together to experience dance in new and unconventional ways. Held in conjunction with Car-Free Sunday SG, kick off your morning with the signature GTM Dance-Walk starting from the National Gallery Singapore’s City Hall Steps. This year’s refreshed Dance-Walk has brought the cardio and dance elements of last year’s inaugural Dance-Walk to another level! You can also experience a range of dance-related programmes at our Festival Grounds on Empress Lawn. There is something for everyone, regardless of stamina, age or prior experience with dance!


Whats new this year?

Dance Film & Photography Exhibition 

This year we have added a dance film & photography exhibition to our programme line-up at GTM SPOTLIGHT. This exhibition will be an eye-opening experience for many as we highlight a different way that you can appreciate dance, apart from taking a class or watching a performance. Featuring works by local dance film makers and dance photographers, this exhibition will run from 27 October (Sat) 5pm to 28 October (Sun) 5pm at the GTM tent on Empress Lawn.  


This dance photography exhibition is curated by Tan Ngiap Heng and features works by Crispian Chan, Shaun Ho, Irving Kwok and Chu Chen. 

The dance film exhibit is curated by local dance film company - Cinemovement.
