Children’s & Youth Troupes
The Children’s Troupe of the Hong Kong Dance Company was established in 2006. The Troupe has about 200 members aged 6 to 12. The aim is to nurture the artistic interest of children through professional dance training courses and to raise their standard of appreciation in the art of Chinese dance. In order to build up the children’s sense of team work, strengthen their confidence and enthusiasm in dance and unleash their full potentials, the Company provides them opportunities for competitions and stage performances to showcase their talents.
Developing from the Children’s Troupe, the Company’s Youth Troupe was formed in 2008 to nurture artistic talents and to raise the standard of performance in Chinese dance. The Troupe has about 70 members aged 13 to 17. Members’ dance techniques and team-spirit are cultivated through rigorous training and professional performance. They will develop as mature individuals with personality and a respectable temperament.
The vision is to develop the Children’s Troupe and Youth Troupe into a forward-looking and representative performing group that can systematically raise the members’ artistic accomplishment and appreciative abilities. HK Dance Company pledges to provide an artistic environment where the young performers can enjoy the fun, freedom and beauty of creativity.
