There's nothing like trying your best.

Theresa was born in Singapore in June 2000. She started taking ballet lessons in Singapore at the age of four and was inspired by her very passionate teachers to fall in love with dance. From 2013 to 2016 she attended the City Ballet Academy of Singapore. From 2016 to 2019 the Elmhurst Ballet School in Great Britain. With solo performances and pas de deux she has already been successful with the Elmhurst Ballet Company. She also gained choreographic experience at the Elmhurst Ballet and the School of the Arts in Singapore. Theresa about her life as a dancer: "Through dance I have learned to express myself, to discover myself and to understand better. I have also discovered different ways of connecting with others without words. Especially through ballet I have learned self-discipline. This makes me resilient and brings me closer to the realization of my dreams."
