SINGAPORE - Newly minted Culture, Community and Youth Minister Grace Fu has wasted little time in endearing herself to the public, attending a host of events since being sworn in on Oct 1 as Singapore's first female full minister to helm a ministry.

Her latest public appearance? A fun cameo during Saturday's (Oct 24) Got To Move dance carnival at The Promontory@Marina Bay, where she showed off some nifty dance skills as she joined participants for a mass dance.

Ms Fu, who was the guest of honour, said: "Wonderful to see Singaporeans getting into the swing of things at Got To Move. Dance is gaining popularity and we want to see it growing further. It is a process of self expression and discovery of talents. 

“Dance transcends language and is a great way to bond people of different ages and races.”

 

Organised by the National Arts Council, the carnival was a culmination of 17 days of dance programmes and activities held at various locations across the island.

Got To Move, which describes itself as a "national movement aimed at getting our little red dot moving and shaking", was launched earlier this year.

It aims to make dance accessible to the masses and showcase what the local dance community offers to a wider audience.
