Miller Performing Arts: Swing Dance Crash Course

"Swing swing swing, everybody start to swing. When the music goes around, everybody goes to town. Just relax and take is slow." Have you ever heard this timeless tune by Benny Goodman? Turn up the music and let’s dance! Swing Dance or Lindy Hop is a style of dance that originated in the Harlem ballrooms of NY during 1930's. Slow and sassy or fast and raw, it is all about music, rhythm, groove and having a fun time!   Take part in this workshop with Hong Kong Swings’ award-winning teachers Thomas Latter and Aurore Alauze and learn the basics of swing dance, including 8 count patterns, routine work and improvisation. As swing is a social dance, be prepared to switch partners throughout the night!

Rae’s Letters of Hope - Master Class recruitment

Rae’s Letters of Hope is a series of workshops in which participants gain an understanding of the emotions young cancer patients may experience during their treatment, and produce thoughtful messages to show their support and concern. This year, led by professional artist Dawn Cheng, participants will create light clay models to give to patients along with these messages to help them stay positive through their journey. We are now recruiting young people aged 15 to 25 to join this meaningful programme. Rae’s Letters of Hope is dedicated to the memory of professional artist Rae Leung, who helped to set up this youth cancer support initiative in 2014.

X’tra Special Arts Project

Since 2011, YAF's popular X'tra Special Arts Project has offered workshops to stimulate creativity among students with special needs, and their teachers. The project has benefited over a thousand participants, helping students to express their feelings and enhance their self-esteem through art. In 2016, this popular project will offer special needs schools a new series of free Xtra Special Arts workshops and teacher training sessions with a focus on sand painting and concerts. Sand painting is a popular art form in Hong Kong. The technique is relatively easy for special needs students to master, and they are quickly able to create their work and see amazing immediate results. Comfy concerts allows special needs and handicapped students to be part of a fun and inspiring music performance. For these sessions, YAF invites professional musicians to perform at the students' school. The musicians also provide percussion instruments for the students to play along. The X'tra Special Arts Teacher Workshop provides a platform where teachers of special needs students share their experiences and take part in a variety of inspiring creative tasks designed to enhance teaching approaches in special needs classrooms. Special needs schools or related organisations interested in these workshops should email for details.
