This week's final show features modern and Warrior Lanling pieces

A series of weekly dance performances organised by the MTR has given students a chance to relax after school.

Under the Art in MTR - Living Art programme, artistic groups have been showing off their dancing talents at the Central Subway of the Hong Kong Station every Friday at 6pm this month.

Jump, who opened the show on September 7, attracted a large crowd with their rhythmic street jazz and modern dance.

The following Friday, Form Four and Form Five students from Lee Kau Yan Memorial School performed a mixture of modern and traditional dance.

'We collaborated with two other schools for the performance. We performed modern dance and they performed Chinese dance and ballet,' said Cheung Man-fung, teacher and adviser of the modern dance group at Lee Kau Yan Memorial School.

'Our students had a chance to perform in public as well as learn from dancers of the other two schools. We thought that there would be about 30 people, but there were more than double that number. The students were very excited.

They showed confidence and performed well.'

Last week, Otro-Tango performed an Argentine tango. There's a final chance for those who have missed the great performances over the past three weeks.

This Friday, the City Contemporary Dance Company will stage modern and Warrior Lanling dance pieces. The show lasts 45 minutes.
