Dance is an art form which can provide significant statements about the world, life and the human condition. Dancers and other artists are the spiritual heart of any society, and a reflection of its value and beliefs, hopes and aspirations. The School of Dance therefore aims to produce creative dance artists who are able to recognise Hong Kong as the crossroads of Eastern and Western cultures with a global perspective, and to contribute to the development of the region’s diverse and ever-expanding dance culture. 

Studying or taking up dance as a profession is no longer limited to dance performance, teaching and choreography. School of Dance strives to ensure that our young dance artists not only receive professional training in dance performance, choreography, but also develop a wider interest in the arts, cultural studies, and cross-disciplinary studies. School aims to cultivate students with a deep appreciation of the performing arts; encourage interdisciplinary research and cross-school collaborations so that students become articulate and intelligent advocates and entrepreneurs of their art form.

Integration lies at the very heart of the school’s philosophy; that is, the integration of its three specialisations of performance practice areas, of practice and dance studies theory, of technique, choreography, dance science, pedagogy and dance technology, of the school and the profession.
