Selina is a former Coryphée dancer with Hong Kong Ballet. Her roles ranges from Valencienne in Ronald Hynd’s Merry Widow to Dumpy in David Allen’s Cinderella, among other soloist roles in the company’s classical to contemporary repertoire. She is fortunate to have worked with many outstanding choreographers and teachers, including Geta Constantinescu, Isabella Fokine, Stephen Jefferies, Yuri Ng, Bengt Jorgen, Jeffrey Graham Hughes, Irek Mukhamedov, John Meehan, Rudi Van Dantzig, Natalie Weir, Merrill Ashley, Ronald Hynd, Lin Mei Fong and many others. Selina currently dances with the Metropolitan Opera where she has performed in John Adams’s Nixon in China, Puccini’s Turandot and Madama Butterfly, Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Wagner’s Parsifal.
Selina’s interest in dance choreography began while she was a student at the Hong Kong Academy for the Performing Arts (HKAPA). After joining the Hong Kong Ballet, she started creating dance work for the company and was later promoted to Choreographic Apprentice in 2007 under the direction of John Meehan. During that period, she choreographed the company’s production of Swan Lake, dance scenes for Hong Kong Opera’s production of Aida, and When Light Shines Through for HKAPA.
In New York, Selina continues searching for her expression in movement. After she received her MFA in Dance from NYU, her creative work has been seen at Bard College, La MaMa Moves Dance Festival, Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater, the Mark Morris Dance Center and Skirball Theater. Her latest work, Destiny, was commissioned by the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival, performed at Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, New York.
