It also organises dance events where participants gets to learn various dances from other countries, such as the Israeli Folk Dance, and Recreation Dance from Taiwan and Hong Kong.
The SCEC firmly believes in the need to keep the Senior Citizens active, both mentally and physically.

The IGs include, including Line Dance club, Folk Dance club, Stylo Drumming group, Fun walkers club, Taichi group, Yoga Meditation group and Photography club.

Many have made more friends through their participation in our events and activities and some of them have even joined the SCEC as volunteers to serve the community.

We look forward to continue to do our part for the community, and strive to ensure our Senior Citizens lead a healthy life, both mentally and physically. Thank You!”
