A three year program for Singapore American School students in 6th - 8th Grade teaching them the rules for how to dress, dine and dance in a variety of situations with manners and grace.   


Our Mission

That Dance Thing (TDT) is a classic cotillion-model, extra-curricular, and co-educational program for SAS Middle School students organized and operated by parent volunteers. Our primary objective is to teach ballroom dance, as well as dining and social etiquette, in a safe and non-competitive environment. Dinner Dances are held monthly (less frequently for 7th and 8th graders) on a Friday or Saturday night.

This program gives the kids confidence, and helps them learn what to expect, and how to behave, in formal situations.
