A promising future in dance was forecast for 16-year-old Chan Wun-sze, winner of this year's South China Morning Post Student Dancer of the Year Award. One of the judges, Susan Street, dean of the School of Dance at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (APA), said Wun-sze could do well very with her talent. 'Obviously, she could pursue a career in dance.' Wun-sze, a Po Leung Kuk 1983 Board of Directors' College student, will receive a $20,000 scholarship. She will also be awarded a free course from the Art School of Hong Kong Arts Centre and 10 flexicoupons from the City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC). The two other judges were Pun Siu-fai, education and outreach director of the CCDC, and Tania Tang, lecturer at the APA's School of Dance. Ms Tang said Wun-sze's fundamental skills were very good. 'She handles different role-play in her dancing really well, which makes her so outstanding.' Having been in the awards judging panel for three years, Ms Street said the quality of this year's student dancers was extremely high. She was also impressed by their enthusiasm and commitment. 'I thought I only had a slim chance to win as I only dance ballet, while most of the other participants are involved in more than one type of dancing,' said Wun-sze, who came first among 33 entrants. Wun-sze, who has been dancing since she was five, will continue to focus on classical ballet. First runner-up Joyce Lee Ka-bo, 15, from Jockey Club $5,000 scholarship.
