The Little Arts Academy (LAA) is an established arts training centre founded by TRCL. With the support of Business Times Budding Artist Fund (BTBAF), LAA has touched lifes of many beneficiaries. The following are just a few:
16 years old
“I’ve found a family at LAA. LAA gave me the chance to study at my dream school and to pursue my dance passion further. I’ve also been given the opportunity to perform overseas and I’m ever so grateful to BTBAF for allowing me to learn so much through this dance journey.”
24 years old
“Being in 10 Sq Y gave me ample opportunities to learn the ropes behind pre/post production, organizational skills, leadership and made me love teaching young people. Most importantly, it made me realize the value of the arts. That the arts have the ability save, inspire and heal lives. I’m the artiste I am today because of my humble beginnings with LAA & 10SQ.”

“Through my training at 10Square Youth, I learned more about visual arts and had managed to build a good portfolio. On top of that, I also met a group of friends who are passionate about arts and had done various projects with them.
After leaving 10sq, I pursued my diploma in Early Childhood with Ngee Ann Poly. I graduated last year and am now an Early Childhood Teacher.”
18 years old
“With my mother being the sole breadwinner, supporting my sister and I, I am grateful to BTBAF which has given me the opportunity to learn more about the performing arts and experience a taste of what its like in the performing arts industry. The Arts Incubation Programme has helped me find my passion and interest in dance. I was lucky to be trained by nationally known professionals who opened my eyes to the different aspects of dance. Without BTBAF, it would have been a harder struggle for me to find what I loved to do, as my family would not have been able to afford an education for a course in a performing arts academy, and I would have been given far less opportunities and platforms to showcase my talent in front of an audience.”
20 years old
“The BT BAF has helped me by funding my fees for the 10 Square Youth programme. When I first came to 10 Square Youth programme, I did not know how to sing pop songs. But after receiving music training for one year, I manage to learn. Both BT BAF and 10 Square Youth have made me learn many new things and also made me become a better person – more disciplined and confident.”
24 years old
“My ambition is to be a professional dancer and choreography artist. I also aspire to give back to the community and inspire people. BT BAF has made it possible for me to develop the relevant skills and platforms to further my studies. I am grateful to BT BAF for aiding me and supporting my dreams. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor in Dance and hopes to give back after graduation.”
17 years old
“From the time I spent in 10sq I learnt a lot about the theatre industry and how to prepare myself for it. There were also some life skills which I have learnt, like being more open minded and firm and more outspoken . I benefitted a lot in improving my social skills. Now I know how to manage things with others . I am enrolled with Ngee Ann Poly’s film, sound and video course and will learn more about the arts.”
17 years old
“I feel very privileged to be able to pursue my musical passion without having to worry about the financial costs involved. Through LAA, I have learned a lot such as music improvisation, arrangement and composition of original pieces. This is possible because of a very supportive teacher, Mr Amin. I can now play a range of instruments including the piano, guitar, drums, angklung and ukulele. I hope this will help to fulfill my dream of becoming a composer in the future.”
It was indeed a fun experience learning to doodle from Kumar. He is a lawyer and a self-taught artist with a great passion for art. During this online event conducted via Zoom, we have over 20 children participating.
Children were introduced to basic batik art painting
