M1 and People's Association Youth Movement launch dance competition

SINGAPORE - M1 Limited (M1) and the People's Association Youth Movement (PAYM) have teamed up to add sizzle to Singapore's dance scene, through the inaugural M1 Dance Mania 2014.

The event, to be held on Oct 4, 2014 at the Sengkang Community Club Hardcourt, will see dancers competing to wow a panel of top international and Singapore judges comprising Ash Ali, Ewan McRidz, Felix Huang, Maika Rushball, Michael Sim and Mike Fallorina, to win cash and prizes worth $5,000.

Singapore's Bokwa and Zumba enthusiasts can also look forward to a healthy Bokwa+Zumba Combi Workout. Early bird registrants who sign up for the free activity, which is suitable for dance enthusiasts of all ages, will also be entitled to a complimentary goodie bag.

M1 will also be raising funds for the underprivileged children and youth of its adopted charities at the event, through its fun-filled 80s Flash-Back charity carnival featuring games such as Donkey Kong. Funds raised though the event, an extension of M1's annual charity fundraising event, will go toward making an even bigger positive impact on the children and youth of M1's adopted charities.

"Dance is a universal language and for people of all ages to enjoy. The M1 Dance Mania 2014 offers an exciting platform for dance practitioners to compete and showcase their skills, as well as dance enthusiasts to participate in one of Singapore's largest Bokwa and Zumba mass dance events, thus broadening the appeal of dance. We want to encourage everyone to come down and join us on 4 October, to dance and have fun while giving back to the underprivileged, and together make the M1 Dance Mania 2014 the most successful dance festival in Singapore," said Mr Ivan Lim, Director of Corporate Communications, M1.

"We are happy to collaborate with M1 in this inaugural dance competition which looks to be one of the most exciting dance events on the calendar. PAYM has always supported the development of youths in the community through platforms like this to enable our youths to pursue their interests and showcase their talents. We are confident that competitions like this will give our youths wide exposure and opportunities to achieve their potential," said Mr Patrick Sim, Director of Youth Division, People's Association.
