Got to Move
Got to Move, an initiative by the National Arts Council (NAC), is the first nationwide dance movement that celebrates the diversity of dance in Singapore. With two pop-up events throughout the year in addition to an anchor festival held annually in October, Got to Move aims to ignite Singaporeans’ interest in dance and to deepen their appreciation of the art form. It is a national platform to bring together Singapore’s dance scene – professionals and enthusiasts – and to showcase their talents and works to a broad audience.
