Drop out(s): 2 trainees

We invited former trainees [Leticia Tan, Monica Te, Georgia Hampson and Jasmine Chanthery] who have proven their excellence in many talents, including leadership, music and organisation skills amongst many others, to be trainer assistants for the four teams at the 2023 boot camp. Their experience and leadership truly pushed the trainees to improve in a short amount of time.

For the first time, trainees received a rehearsal vest as worn by many idols for stage rehearsals.

To reward the trainees' hard work, The Academy invited world-class choreographer, Mihawk Back (Kooyoung Back) to teach a special class at the end of the camp. Follow him on Instagram @mihawkback.
