High-fliers at ChildAid

A GROUP of youngsters from Jitterbugs Swingapore was hard at work yesterday rehearsing a form of aerial dance incorporating acrobatics and the use of apparatus such as hoops and fabric.

The kids are among 130 performers who will take to the stage tonight at the University Cultural Centre for ChildAid 2011, an annual concert to raise funds for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund.

The concert runs for three nights till Saturday.

The performers, all aged 19 and below, will sing, dance or play musical instruments on a stage designed to look like a giant storybook.

The main sponsors for this year's show are Citibank and HSBC, and the official venue partner is the National University of Singapore's Centre For the Arts.

Limited tickets for tonight's show are still available through www.bytes.sg
