With sleepless nights from dance teachers for the past few months, support of parents, generous sponsorship from well-wishers and of course dedication of students, the charity event managed to raise a sum of RM130,000.

The evening provided an opportunity for students of the academy to showcase their passion for dance, displaying skills that they had learned over the year. The curtain raiser was a series of dances according to cultures, seasons, elements and a couple of Jazz numbers.

Soon, it was time for Giselle, headlined by dance student Nikki Yeoh. With a small, peaceful village as its setting, Giselle tells of a young peasant girl caught in a triangular love. She was in love with Albrecht but the gamekeeper, Hilarion, was smitten by her.

Unbeknownst to Giselle, Albrecht is a nobleman in disguise engaged to Princess Bathilde. Hilarion tries to inform her that she is being deceived but she would not listen. When she finally finds out about Albrecht’s true identity and deceit, she goes mad and dies of sadness and shock.

  1. The performance seems lovely and since all of this was done for a lovely cause, the event looks like it was splendid as well.

  2. Oh I like the story of Giselle, and I could imagine its tragic story. But I would like to watch it perform in ballet. Hope our ballet community here in Manila will also showcase Giselle.

  3. This is amazing, from the pics itself it looks like it was a great performance..and the fact it was for charity..even more amazing…
