Did you know…

Zach did not anticipate that ballet would become his full-time career. When his mother enrolled him in ballet school, he knew nothing about the art form as it was not popular among boys in China.


“When I was little, I was an introverted person. The great thing about ballet is that it is an art form for expression without words and for me sometimes words just don’t do the trick. Dancing is the ultimate form of self-expression and it doesn’t require you to explain yourself. “

We pay our respects to their Elders — past, present and emerging — and acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made and continue to make to the cultural landscape of this country.
