Malay Dance


Malay Dance (Aswari)

Beatty Secondary School’s Malay Dance group has been around for more than twenty years, specialising in mainly traditional Malay dances such as the Asli, Inang, Joget and Zapin. One of the objectives of this CCA is to instil confidence in our dancers while performing and showcasing their talent besides the values of commitment and perseverance. Various platforms were given to the dancers to showcase their capabilities and strengths in the performing arts such as performing for both school and external events.

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