Biography

Ms Crystal Lee Soo Jeong has been trained in Classical ballet since the age of 4 years old under the tutelage of Ms Cindy Toh. Having performed at several concerts and competed in competitions, she has accumulated an abundant amount of experiences from exposure to the stage. Crystal has been awarded with the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Advanced Foundation Certificate with Merit and is still currently pursuing Advanced 1. She had achieved Merits and Distinctions for all her previous grades.

Besides, she has also been accepted into the RAD Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies Programme. She has taught young children Ballet for the past 2 years in various private dance schools, childcares and community centres.

During her secondary school days, Crystal has performed alongside her dance mates and was awarded Gold Award for SYF 2012 and the Gold Award for 3rd International Youth Dance Competition (IYDC) 2013 Singapore. Previously while dancing under Crestar School of Dance, Crystal and her team clinched 1st place in their 3rd internal Crestar School Dance Competition. 

In 2017 under Crestar, she has also taken part in Get The Beat Asia Dance Competition for group and trio, and Hong Kong Challenge Cup in which her team and her achieved the Bronze Award.

She has attended the Royal Academy of Dance Summer School 2014 and performed at the Republic Polytechnic Cultural Centre upon completion of the programme.  

In 2015, she was honoured to have the opportunity to be one of the two ballet models for Lisa Howell’s Dance Physiotherapy Workshop Singapore in which she was able to gain a wide range of knowledge regarding safe dance practice, body conditioning, preparing the body for pointe work and how to tackle injuries while dancing. 

Besides her passion to teach and inspire others, she also believes that every dancer should be equipped with ample amount of knowledge about their own body and the way it works in order to fully maximise their potentials and reduce injuries. 

She has studied music since the age of 4 and graduated with the Diploma in Music and Audio Technology. With her great knowledge in the field, she has helped out in the editing and beautifying of music for Ballet performances and competitions. Besides, music plays an immense role in dance, hence she makes sure to pay extra attention when picking out the music for dance exercises in class.

Crystal is confident and wishes to continue her creative career in a place where not only can she challenge herself but also pass down her skills and knowledge to the younger generations to come. She is passionate and hopes that she will be able to influence others to take up ballet as it trains one to become a fearless, meticulous and confident individual.
