Programme Synopsis “LIGHTS, TIKTOK, ACTION!” is a unique experiential programme that leverages on the rising popularity of TikTok to generate interest in movement and dance. For this excursion programme, students will first be treated to a dance performance by our Converge Studios Performing Crew, CV Crew. “LIGHTS” signify illumination and knowledge, and this phase is aimed at generating interest in the upcoming activities, for students to learn more about and witness first-hand a choreographed performance of the selected genre. “TIKTOK” phase makes up the bulk of the programme. Students will be taught a short dance routine, akin to a TikTok dance video. Age-appropriate song will be used, and students are encouraged to display teamwork in carrying out layering effects and formation changes while executing the dance routine. This platform is chosen as an engagement tool to encourage participation, specifically chosen for its adoption by youths, and ability to generate and create short dance clips. “ACTION” is the final stage of the programme, where our instructors will film (including post-programme stitching and overlay with music) their final routine and create a TikTok video that will be submitted to the school. This would allow the students to have a concrete takeaway from this excursion, and to have a common keepsake that is uniquely theirs (or the school’s). Having this end objective also helps in goal setting, and provides additional incentive for students to participate actively in this programme. This programme is specifically designed to be quick, concise and efficient to manage the attention span of kids and youths. The adoption of TikTok and social media also increases familiarity and security, and lowers barrier of entry into dance. Furthermore, it introduces students to a fast-growing dance-sharing platform, which has grown to incorporate not just dance routines, but drills, dance exercises and sharing by renowned choreographers.
