Danc­ing Up a Storm

THE HONG KONG BAL­LET BALL

Hong Kong Tatler - - Upfront -

Reto Reng­gli Flora Zeta Cheong-leen, Yvette Yung and Mira Yeh The sounds of happy chatter filled the foyer of the Grand Hy­att as the crowd, smartly dressed in black and white, sipped on Per­ri­er­jouët cham­pagne in an­tic­i­pa­tion of the entertainment await­ing be­yond the ball­room doors. Anne Wang-liu, Peter Che­ung and Vic­to­ria Law-ha were just a few of those look­ing their monochro­matic best for the an­nual Hong Kong Bal­let Ball, which was spon­sored by lux­ury watch­maker Jaegerlecoul­tre. Once the gath­er­ing moved into the ball­room proper, bal­let chair­woman Daisy Ho mounted the stage, flanked by co-chairs Mira Yeh and Janice Chan-choy, to kick off the evening with a wel­com­ing ad­dress.

The evening’s entertainment in­cluded not one but three per­for­mances by the com­pany’s dancers. The first was Waltz of the Flow­ers from The Nutcracker. Then came White vs Black, a piece chore­ographed by Yuh Egami and per­formed by Ge Gao and Chen Zhiyao. How­ever, the fi­nal per­for­mance, Still Lives, stole the show.
