On-site at Tampines Round Market and Food Center (TRMFC)
Picking up from the previous rehearsal, this rehearsal has more trolleys as some of the dancers were able to borrow from their friends. Aameer also brought a portable speaker so that he could try out the sounds as they rehearse. It was a particularly hot afternoon, and Hasyimah wanted the dancers to acclimatise themselves to the heat, as there is a chance it will be this hot during the actual performances.
More trolleys for the dancers to try out.
Everyone then went near the bicycle racks to discuss about the second segment, as it was more conducive and sheltered. Haizad shared that there will now be a short choreography during Ji Ba Ban, as they “announced” the TOTO winners. It will then be followed by an old, popular Malay song, Oh Fatimah.
During the discussion, Hasyimah, along with 3 youth participants in the Social Mixing, went to a nearby hardware shop to gather more materials and begin making the costumes. They then headed somewhere near the dancers and started work.
With reference to the designs made previously, the Social Mixing Group started making the costumes.
The dancers were learning and practicing a new 6-8s of choreography publicly.
Passers-by were very curious as to what was happening as they saw people dancing in one side and another group cutting and making costumes on the floor. It would be safe to assume that it was an unusual sight and a random encounter on a Saturday afternoon.
