Gifted Young Dancer Programme (GYDP)


GYDP is a unique training programme for talented young students aged 14 to 18. Based on best practice models from around the world, the GYDP is designed to complement and supplement a student’s existing dance tuition. Successful candidates will receive weekly technical and artistic training from Hong Kong’s most experienced dance teachers at the world-class facilities of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. The programme aims to develop the student’s awareness of dance as an art form and a career option. It is particularly designed for young people who are intending to pursue full-time dance training once they have completed secondary school.
