Speaking after the light-hearted signing ceremony, Ms Carvalho expressed her wish to see Crestar School of Dance @ Toa Payoh grow to become a go-to place for dance aspirants of all ages to enjoy professional coaching.
Ms Carvalho, who joined Crestar School of Dance in 1995, received her initial dance training in Malaysia. Before that, she was a professional dancer with the People’s Association Dance Company and became proficient in ballet, modern and traditional dances, and jazz. The avid dancer has also performed overseas, including in Thailand, Indonesia and North Korea.
Many of her Crestar dance students have participated and won awards in regional competitions. Some have also won scholarship awards at the Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dancing Australia Summer Schools.
The newly-minted Crestar School of Dance @ Toa Payoh is designed with a minimalist Nordic interior. It is purposefully-built and discerningly-equipped to provide the best dance environment for all our students.
