This was such a one of a kind experience, it was truly exceptional! So different from anything else in Hong Kong. No where else will you find a really well executed dance intensive lead by two amazing and well known professionals in the industry!
It was a really special and unique experience and I’m so happy that I got to dance with two very talented and inspiring teachers and connect with other dancers in my hometown.
