Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) RTS

Certified PBT Instructor Levels 1 & 2

Certified PCT Instructor Level 1

Elizabeth achieved Distinctions in all her Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Graded and Vocational exams and was head of her Dance CCA group in Secondary School. It was no surprise that she eventually enrolled at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) to study dance full-time.

 

Elizabeth was a recipient of the Ngee Ann Kongsi Merit Award for 2 consecutive years in 2010 and 2011. In 2012, she graduated with the award for Best Graduate of her cohort. 

While in NAFA, Elizabeth was a project dancer with RAW Moves and Frontier Danceland, before making a foray into teaching and choreographing after graduating. There, she developed a focus on Creative Movement, Ballet, and Contemporary Dance. She has also had opportunities to participate in dance festivals around Europe and looks forward to bringing her students to experience dance culture in other parts of the world.

Having worked with choreographers from around the globe, such as Albert Tiong (Malaysia), Andrea Beckham (USA), Larry Clark (USA), James Cousins (UK), Richard Causer (Australia), and Filomar Tariao (Singapore), Elizabeth's rich experiences continue to inspire her teaching and choreography. Her choreographic works have been featured on platforms such as Esplanade's da:ns Festival, and in local and international competitions, emerging among the Top 3 in the Solo and Group categories. 

 

Drawing on wisdom she has gleaned in her time as a professional dancer, teacher, and choreographer, Elizabeth founded DancEdge Academy to nurture the next generation of confident, competent, and committed dancers, who share the same love for dance that she has.
