Event Details

Please join us for this exclusive Team Sweden event at Singapore Dance Theatre on Tuesday February 4th at 7pm.

Organised by the Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT), this is an opportunity for the Swedish community in Singapore to meet up close with Mr Janek Schergen, Artistic Director of SDT, who received the SwedCham award Swede of the Year for 2019.

During this exclusive event, you will get an insight into the world of ballet - behind-the-scenes. SDT will perform for us Edmund Stripe's Piano Concerto No. 2 Opus 102, the Polonaise from George Balanchine's Theme and Variations, as well as Fives by the legendary Singaporean choreographer Choo-San Goh.

The evening will conclude with a dessert buffet where you will have the opportunity to mingle with the Artistic Team of SDT.

Limited number of seats available. Tickets are free.


Singapore Dance Theatre was founded in 1988 by Goh Soo Khim and Anthony Then. The Company has since developed into Singapore's premier professional dance company comprising of 35 Company dancers plus apprentices. In 2002, SDT was honoured with the opportunity to grace the official opening of the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay with the opening performance of Boi Sakti's Reminiscing the Moon.

In 2008, Janek Schergen was appointed Artistic Director of SDT. Under his leadership, the Company has made new achievements in the international arena as well as in Singapore. In the last ten years, the Company has added 30 world premieres and 19 company premieres to the repertoire, in addition to numerous revivals of the existing Company's repertoire. Janek is also the Artistic Director of the Choo-San Goh & H. Robert Magee Foundation which oversees the licensing and production of Choo-San Goh's ballets and the annual Choo-San Goh Awards for Choreography.

In 2013, SDT moved to a new premise in Bugis+ with four state-of-the-art studios.
