Damansara Performing Arts Centre
Anchoring on the growing awareness in the arts among various Malaysian communities, Mammoth Empire Holdings Sdn Bhd extends its corporate social responsibility to the development of arts and culture in Malaysia. This meaningful endeavour takes the form of a new arts space to meet the growing needs of arts practitioners and arts aficionados in the Petaling Jaya / the Damansara district.

Our In-House Dance Programmes
Focusing on dance, DPAC aims to be Malaysia’s leading dance platform, uniquely dedicated to broaden and raise dance standards in Malaysia by organising quality educational programmes, and presenting quality programmes from both local and international performers. Through our in-house production, D for Dancing, we aim to cultivate artistic exchanges in professional practices by inviting reputable international dance artists for collaborative residencies. Contributing to dance education in Malaysia, DPAC has also introduced the Dancer’s Training Programme (DTP) to young budding dancers to provide them with further training in professional practices. Under the guidance and direction of Artistic Director, Wong Jyh Shyong (JS), DPAC Dance Company (DDC) was formed along with the establishment of DPAC as a choreographic workplace with local and international dance artists.
