Helen is a recent graduate from Drexel University. She majored in dance and minored in somatics. A significant aspect of her study there was community dance. This includes teaching children to dance at the Dornsife Center of Neighborhood Partnerships, presenting interactive performances at many elementary schools, and facilitating middle school students to create choreography. During her education, she also danced and choreographed for the Drexel Dance Ensemble and has become a certified Pilates instructor from Drexel Pilates.
In 2018, she was accepted as an education intern at BalletX. Back then, she assisted Dance eXchange teaching artists in public schools as well as handled administrative tasks. Currently, she is working as a teaching artist and an administrative coordinator at BalletX. She is so grateful for the performing arts opportunities she sees in Philly which she didn’t think was possible in Hong Kong, her home city. Thanks to the generous donors who funded Dance eXchange, she can now share the joy, empowerment, and strength that dance can bring to children.
