Danc­ing Up A Storm

WHAT Hong Kong Bal­let Ball WHEN Fe­bru­ary 17, 2017 WHERE Grand Hy­att

Hong Kong Tatler Society - - Top10 Parties Of The Year -

Happy chat­ter filled the foyer of the Grand Hy­att as the crowd sipped on cham­pagne in an­tic­i­pa­tion of the en­ter­tain­ment await­ing be­yond the ball­room doors at the an­nual Hong Kong Bal­let Ball. Once the gath­er­ing moved into the ball­room proper, Hong Kong Bal­let chair­woman Daisy Ho, flanked by co-chairs Mira Yeh and Jan­ice Chan- Choy, mounted the stage to give a wel­com­ing ad­dress. The evening’s pro­gramme of en­ter­tain­ment in­cluded per­for­mances by the bal­let com­pany’s dancers. The first was Waltz of the Flow­ers from The Nutcracker. Then came White vs Black, a piece chore­ographed by Yuh Egami. How­ever, the fi­nal per­for­mance, Still Lives, stole the show. Ricky Hu’s chore­og­ra­phy mixed tra­di­tional bal­let with pole danc­ing. A live auc­tion also took place with Ian McGin­lay of Sotheby’s pre­sid­ing. The night kicked into full gear with the ar­rival of DJ Will Power, who kept the dance­floor swish­ing into the small hours.
