Past Year Awards

Awards & Prizes

We sincerely thank all students & their family members for their dedication and support.

Cheng Ballet Academy is pleased and humbled to open 2017 with our participation in the Nihon Ballet Academy (NBA) All Japan Competition.

The academy trains many local & expatriate students each year, with a specially dedicated curriculum ranging from Baby Ballet for three-year-olds to pre-professional programs for students 13 to 20 years old, similar to overseas international programs where one may wish to pursue dance as a career.

We believe that our emphasis on vocational classical ballet training, dedication to excellence in dance technique and ballet education hones our students to be dancers of the highest calibre and therefore, every effort and provision is made for them to be the best.
