The Aurora School of Dance is founded by Principal Suraya Ahmad Kamil in 1989.
Since then, thousands of dancers have experienced the wonder, exhilaration, discipline, and joy of expressing themselves through the art of dance. This “time tested“ focused teaching and coaching philosophy have produced national and world-class dance champions.
We, at the Aurora School of Dance, foster excellence in our students by providing a rigorous, diverse and nurturing environment. Students receive professional classical ballet training, which is the foundation of all dance and performance opportunities.
Dance study produces individuals with strong self-esteem, confidence, poise, teamwork and elevated social skills. Students as young as 3 years-old, begin their dance life at Aurora, and many continue through high school and college or university.
Our curriculum includes classes in Classical Ballet, Modern Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, and Competitive Ballroom Dancing at all age groups. We also conduct recreational dance programs for adults.
Many of Aurora’s students have transitioned as dance professionals, as well as graduates in medicine, engineering and business professionals. Our alumni maintain an active role and guest-teach or assist in our productions. Most recently, Aurora’s scholar May Jean Teo, 3 times champion at the Dance Society of Malaysia’s Solo Ballet Competition was accepted by the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
Our alumni and teacher vice principal Suhaili Micheline and her student Naim Sherazad won gold medals at the WCOPA Grand World Championship in Hollywood CA as well as the “Grand Champions of the World” title (July 2010).
The School stages many performances with Government, Corporate, and Charity organisations including frequent appearances on local and national television. Teacher and previous student since aged 4, Siti Amellia Feroz has been instrumental in producing works for such events.
