Teachers Dance To Black Pink For Marsiling Primary School’s Children’s Day Concert

Children’s Day celebrations were undoubtedly one of the highlights of our primary school years. Free gifts, school ending early and teachers letting loose were just some of the things we looked forward to.

Students at Marsiling Primary School received quite a treat on Thursday (3 Oct) when a few teachers started dancing to “Ddu-du Ddu du” by Blackpink.

Judging from the crowd’s reaction in the video, these bold teachers are well on their way to becoming Singapore’s own K-Pop sensations.

Blackpink dance number thrilled Marsiling Primary crowd

The performance started off quite harmlessly with 4 male teachers wearing black t-shirts and pink wigs standing on stage.


You’d probably think, “Oh no, this is going to make me cringe.”

You may be right because their getup looks rather ridiculous, but they took everyone by surprise the moment the music started playing.


With much confidence and gusto, the teachers danced to Blackpink’s “Ddu-du-Ddu-du”, imitating moves from the music video almost exactly.


Though not the best rendition of the popular song, the teachers’ efforts are certainly worth a standing ovation.

Cheers for students & teachers

While the concert was to celebrate the students on Children’s Day, many took the chance to thank teachers for their dedication in nurturing the children.

Academics aside, their hilarious antics show a different, more lighthearted side to the serious figures students see on most days.


Students and fellow staff who were present commented that they enjoyed the performance, applauding the teachers for their efforts.


Some mused at the things teachers are willing to do for the sake of their students, reminding us of the sacrifices our teachers have made.


If this heartwarming occasion makes you think back to your favourite teacher, why not try to reach out to them?

Teachers have, after all, played a huge part in shaping our lives, so the least we can do is let them know that we appreciate them.
