Asia Global Bellydance Competition 2017

Many experts say belly dancing is the oldest form of dance, having roots in all ancient cultures from the orient to India to the mid-East. Probably the greatest misconception about belly dancing is that it is intended to entertain men. Throughout history, this ritualized expression has usually been performed for other women, generally during fertility rites or parties preparing a young woman for marriage. In most cases, the presence of men is not permitted.

Belly dancing has grown enormously in popularity, not just as a dance event but has grow into festivals. Asia Global Bellydance Competition is an annual event, much look forward by all bellydancers in Singapore to showcase their dance discipline and share their love and passion in this dance with all who are interested in this dance art form.

D’J PARTY 2017

D’J Party has come a long way since its inception back in 2003. We started out as a group of Japanese Music enthusiasts, during the era where visual kei bands dominated the Japanese rock scene. All we really wanted to do was to play the songs we loved and share that love and passion on a stage with like-minded people. As we did just that, we also hoped to reach out to the public and get them to take notice of Japanese Pop Culture, which to us was something that stood on its own and not limited to just the Japanese people. We started out with just over ten acts during that one weekend day which we so passionately prepared for.

Fast forward 15 years and we have grown our community to one that is cohesive and organic. We now have over thirty acts over an entire weekend, consisting of singing, dancing and band performance categories. It is heartening to know that within and across categories, our acts are collaborating with one another; not just a sign of the growth of our performances but also that of the friendships and bonds forged within the community. Many of us have grown together with D’J Party and from there, formed our own (sometimes dysfunctional but loving) families.

Come join us as we celebrate our 15th Anniversary. I promise you, this will be a weekend of performances you will not want to miss.

Asia Global Bellydance Masterclass

Belly dancing is natural to a woman’s bone and muscle structure with movements emanating from the torso rather than in the legs and feet. The dance often focuses upon isolating different parts of the body, moving them independently in sensuous patterns, weaving together the entire feminine form. Belly dancing is generally performed barefoot, thought by many to emphasize the intimate physical connection between the dancer, her expression, and Mother Earth. Their costumes are often colorful, flowing garments, accented with flowing scarves and veils. Finger cymbals (made of brass and known as zills) are common, as well as exotic jewelry, including intricate belts made of coins. Other interesting accessories used during the dance are swords, snakes, large vessels, and even huge candelabras, complete with flaming candles.

SSF’s Asis Global Bellydance Masterclass conducted by its judges take place annually, attracting large interested women keen in learning this dance form. Many dancers now study the art form intensively, some even traveling to learn from these Masters to experience the best.

Singapore National Kendama Championship (SNKC) 2017

The Singapore National Kendama Championship (SNKC) is back for the third run after a phenomenal success in 2016. This year we are a part of a campaign under the hashtag #sgroadtokwc to prepare our Singaporean kendama players for the biggest kendama competition battleground, the Kendama World Cup 2017.

Kendama in Singapore...

In 2015, kendama has become a very popular hobby among the students in primary and secondary schools and the number of kendama players multiplied rapidly. We began to see the demand for the toy exploded and more shops starts selling kendamas in places like toy outpost boxes and even in convenient stores like 7-11.


With the rise in popularity, many kendama competitions have been organized to continue sharpening the skills and consistency of our players from increased difficulty in tricks to freestyle competitions that brings out creativity and originality. We have also had visits from internationally known Pro Kendama players like Max Nocross and Cooper Eddie from Sweets Kendamas and Tamotsu Kubota and Yuka Hyuga from GLOKEN had also come to witness the kendama community here in Singapore. They were surprised at how popular kendama is in this part of the world and were impressed by the skill levels of the players here.


With that we are working together with Gloken to recognize the Singapore National Kendama Championship as a pre-event to the Kendama World Cup and will be sending this year's Champion to Japan to compete in the prestigious event. With that we have invited Tamotsu Kubota representative from Gloken, and the dynamic kendama duo Zoomadanke to grace the event.


In 2016, under the campaign #sgroadtokwc, we managed to form a team of 15 representatives including our Champion from SNKC 2016, Anson Yap from Singapore to participate in the Kendama World Cup 2016. Being the winner of SNKC 2016, Anson won for himself a sponsored air ticket and competition fee for the World Cup in Japan. It was a proud moment when one of our own homegrown player, Wai Hao Yap clinched 19th place in the Kendama World Cup 2017 and that had definitely inspire the KendamaSG community that we have what it takes to make our mark in the global kendama scene.


This year, we are coming back with the hashtag #bringbackKSG with the mission to support the kendama community and rekindle the fire and passion within our very own players. We have also opened up the competition to other Asian players to be part of this and the grand prize would include a sponsored trip to Japan for KWC 2017 and to be seeded in the finals.
