Every girl, at some point, has taken a few ballet lessons but dedicating yourself to the craft of dance is quite a feat. Perhaps your inner ballet star will be awakened with the arrival of the Galaxy: International Ballet Gala 2011 where you can enjoy a spectacular performance by international ballet stars such as Tan Yuan Yuan and Damian Smith along with the Hong Kong Ballet dancers.

Held during 27-29 May 2011 at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, they will be performing contemporary works as well as classical pieces, mixing a modern approach to ballet with renowned classical repertoire. What's more, they will be hosting a sneak preview in the evening of 17 May 2011, and a pre-performance talk in the evening of 27 May 2011, also at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Whether you are a fanatic or a rookie, don't miss the opportunity to learn more about their ballet.

This is a fantastic opportunity to see a wide range of dances, so get your tickets now from
