The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, 

香港演藝學院 (2010-2015)

​The training in Hong Kong Youth Ballet Academy (formerly L’Ecole de Jeune Ballet) was an unique experience as we did not follow the usual examination system. Rather than taking examination every year, we would learn variations and went to different competitions held in Hong Kong and overseas. I could see myself a significant improvement was made after every competition. The experience in dancing different variations provided an advantage for me to quickly learn new repertoires when I studied at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA).

The professional full-time training at HKAPA was a great change to me. I was honorable enough to be instructed by prestigious teachers. It had a great influence in my artistry and technique. Furthermore, the school would invite different artists and choreographers every year to teach and choreograph a piece with students that perform at the end of the semester. It provided great opportunities to work with artists from around the world and allowed students to experience different styles of dance.
