Global Indian Cultural Centre (GICC) is a non-profit organization of the Global Indian Foundation, established in 2002 to provide an ideal environment for diverse communities in South East Asia to learn and enjoy the rich cultural heritage of the Indian sub-continent.
Global Indian Foundation started this initiative so that the Indian diaspora remains connected with their traditional roots by imparting a multitude of educational programmes. These include classes in Indian classical music (Hindustani and Carnatic vocal), Indian classical dance (Bharatanatyam, Odissi and Kathak), Indian fusion dance (Global Rhythms), Indian instruments (keyboard, flute and violin), visual arts, languages (Hindi) and sports (athletics, badminton, basketball, cricket, soccer and tennis). The centre also offers courses in public speaking, speech and drama, SIP Abacus and yoga.
GICC follows a recognized curriculum, employs experienced teachers, and is open to people of all nationalities in Singapore. The instruction methodology is student-centric and teachers provide an atmosphere for interactive learning. The assessment, evaluation and reporting is based on clearly stated curriculum expectations and achievement criteria.
