Our Teachers

Our teachers are from all over the world as well as the The Hong Kong Ballet. They have strong dance background with professional training and qualifications. Not only are they all passionate about young children, they have also been specially selected and trained to be gentle and caring towards children. Many of our adult ballet classes are taught by our Hong Kong Ballet teachers.
