Kolej DPAH Abdillah once had a competitive dance group which had won several competitions and was described as one of the best dance teams in Kuching. The group was officially started in 1997 and it took part in the Dance Competition organized by the Sarawak Cultural Village in the same year. For its first appearance in the competition, the group was given the 'Kumpulan Harapan' title and brought home 'Piala Harapan', which was quite a confidence boost for them as newcomers. The group then immediately became a favorite and received good critics from the judges of the competition. Since then, there were many invitations for the group to perform in big events around Kuching. In the same year, they won a Dance Competition organized by the Kuching North City Hall (DBKU) on the Kuching City Day (first place for school category - cultural performance). This achievement led the group to practice harder the next year and it was paid off when the group took first place in the Sarawak Cultural Village School Dance Competition. They also won DBKU's Dance Competition in the same year. In 1999, the senior dancers graduated from school and that left the new dancers struggling to keep their reign as a champions but it proved to be a challenging year for the fresh faces. The newly recruited dancers only managed to take the second or third place in most of the competitions they took part in. In 2000, the group once again recruited new dancers. However, due to problems such as instructor replacements and irregular schedule changes, the group was not able to perform at their best and failed to bag any prizes in any competitions. It was a total meltdown for them but the Kolej DPAH Abdillah Dance Group (now also known as the Kassorga Dancers) had the best dancers in their time. Kolej DPAH Abdillah Dance Group was labelled a 'one hit wonder team' then.
