SINGAPORE - Eyes bright and heads held high, 16 dancers, ranging from eight- to 16-years-old, rehearsed on Saturday (Sept 30) at the Kids Performing Academy for the Arts at Suntec City Mall for their upcoming big night.

Nights, that is, on Nov 24 and 25 at the 12th edition of ChildAid, which they and other young performers will star in, under the guidance of creative director Dick Lee.

To be held at Resorts World Sentosa, ChildAid supports two charities, The Business Times Budding Artists Fund, which helps artistically-gifted children from low-income families, and The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund which helps socially-disadvantaged school-going children pay for their lunch and transport fares.
