Performance experience is very important to children’s growth, both physical and mental. We would provide opportunities on at least 6 competitions. We are very glad that 90% student had won various awards in competitions. Every year, we would cooperate with Hong Kong Disneyland and have the special performance. Students would rewarded with the performance certificates after the performance.

Other than performance, we would organise and corporate with various worldwide dancing organisations on International Master Class, which students could win the full scholarship from various dancing schools and college in the world.

Most importantly, we are very active on charity events. In 2017, We cooperated with China Central Television (CCTV) and Hong Kong mass media on the exchange tour with minorities in China and the performance with students of The National Ballet of China.

FACILITIES

Create Artistic Ambience, Refine Students’ Body and Soul

Our ballet library is especially tailor-made for ballet dancers, and this made Sj Ballet des Arts unique and singular. This is a serene environment fused with the warmth of sunlight and space; and accompanied by refreshing drinks, our students can expose themselves to numerous ballet books and literature. In comparison with mere body movement training, students can now fully enrich themselves and indulge in the artistic root and history of ballet, so that the intended refinement of body and soul can ultimately synchronize. The place delicately fuses an elegant and roomy space with shadow and light, and our students become the focus of the dreamy soft light. In such a poetic environment, they can now fully relax their body and soul; delve into the root of ballet, and attain a holistic refinement.

The zone of our gallery is made of architectural concrete, and this is a deliberate act to communicate the intended plain and unembellished spirit. Oftentimes, the more simple the quality of a matter, the more unfathomed the philosophy you will find behind. Architectural concrete is a symbol of anti-embellishment and anti-material. It stands for absolute sincerity and it brings back the true color of the spiritual origin. Architectural concrete is the very base of architect, and so is ballet, it is the very artistic foundation of all dances, the pure essence of the spirit.

SJ Ballet de Arts is equipped with two spacious dance studios. Inside each studio, we have full height wall mirrors and professional handles to coup with different learning needs of ballet dancers at different stages. Sprung floors can offer our students the highest degree of protection and safety during practices, they help perfect dancers’ posture, and therefore they are indispensable necessities of ballet dancers. Our studios have adopted Harlequin – a world-renowned British brand of floors with international standard for professional dance. Harlequin’s floors have effective shocks absorbing and heat resisting properties, and it can provide the best stability, solidity and comfortableness we required. Up till now, Harlequin is the only brand of professional floors that can achieve international professional standard and is mostly adopted by many famous dance companies of international level.
