Malay Dance

malay dance 2.png
Beatty Secondary School’s Malay Dance group has been around for more than twenty years, specialising in mainly traditional Malay dances such as the Zapin and Inang. Initially starting out with only school-related performances, our Malay dancers have occasionally been invited to perform in non-school related events organised by other organisations.

To instill a sense of belonging and ownership amongst our members, our dancers have decided to name the group Aswari, a short form for Anak Seni Warisan Tari (Child of the Malay Dance Legacy). Even though our vibrant group of dancers comprises students from different races and cultural backgrounds, we have the same interest and passion in keeping traditional Malay dance alive.
