With a career in teaching for more than 18 years, Ms. Ivy has taught in Kuching and Singapore, and is well-versed in the RAD graded and vocational examination syllabi. She is also a mentor for the RAD CBTS teacher certification program. Believing that dance education should not be restricted only to syllabus work, Ms. Ivy also actively sends her students for intra-school, local, and regional dance competitions. Her dedicated coaching has produced award-winners and scholars across various competitions.
Passionate and eager to enrich herself and in turn her students, Ms. Ivy frequently attends local and overseas courses to gain exposure and experience. Some of these courses include the RAD Performance Course (London), the International Summer Dance School (Hong Kong), workshops from ballet masters Bertrand Barena (Opéra National de Paris) and John Byrne (FRAD) and matwork and reformer allegro sessions at Pilates Bodyworks.
Ms. Ivy’s soloists have won many achievements in local and international ballet competitions, such as the Grand Prix Award in the 2021 Masterpiece International Ballet competition.
