MastereignCOPA-Dance

Mastereign Centre of Performing Arts (COPA) Dance is committed to the promotion of dance education through our extensive curriculum and wide-ranging experiences.  We endeavour to inspire our students to love dance as they learn a variety of dance disciplines and appreciate the integration of the developing mind and body in the context of dance.

We have faithfully incorporated the Social and Emotional Learning components and 21st Century Competencies into our dance curriculum. Through the years, we have exposed our students to performance showcases both in and outside of school and many have moved on to win prizes in dance competitions.

Our dance trainers bring their expertise and knowledge into the classroom and are fully committed to the students’ development and training, both in the aspects of developing character values and learning dance techniques.
