Master the art of expressing without words. Famous for our contemporary East-West posture, our style of dance speaks a distinct language of its own. NAFA’s rigorous practical training in contemporary dance and ballet is one of the few conservatory-style programmes in Southeast Asia. Focusing on both contemporary Western and Asian dance performances, it is underpinned by somatic practices, creative approaches and contextual studies, giving your repertoire both edge and versatility.
