Photography

DAAM stands for Dance And Arts Movements. Our objectives are not only to teach and share the art form and culture of dance, but also to inspire and enrich one’s imagination through arts. We see dance, movement as one of the most important elements in creative arts, where relationships between movements and focus tell a story.
As we practice both dance and creative arts, our studio space is a special place to exchange and create. Therefore we are extremely fortunate to offer more affordable yet high quality to all clients. Whether you/your kids dance at our school or should you wish to pay for our membership, further discounts will be offered to you and your family.
