Following a highly successful stage performance in Hong Kong, a group of ballet students set off for Australia to attend classes under the country's top ballet professionals. Eighteen students from the Jean M. Wong School of Ballet, accompanied by four parents and the school principal, Mrs Wong, attended classes at the Australian Ballet School in Melbourne last August. The highlight of the trip was a four-day series of morning classes, conducted by the resident faculty of the Australian Ballet School. The students enjoyed the privilege of working in the school's spacious studios and watching the Australian Ballet Company at rehearsal. On the last day, the Hong Kong students presented a mixed programme of Chinese and classical ballet for their Australian hosts, including teachers and students. The students then proceeded to Sydney, where they visited the famous Opera House, and relaxed on Bondi beach. They then travelled to the Gold Coast before returning to Hong Kong. The students said they were greatly impressed by the high standard of dancing in Australia, and some even said they would like to pursue their training with the Australian Ballet School. The trip was organised by the parent-teacher association of the Jean M. Wong School of Ballet. The PTA organised similar summer ballet trips to Beijing in 1994 and to London last year.
