Anabella Lenzu
Anabella's classes focus on using the body as a sensitive, vibrating instrument of expression, studying, discovering and practicing the principles of: presence on stage, the anatomy of the body in action, coordination and control; the elements of dance: time, space, energy and movement and exploring the principle: Motion Creates Emotion / Emotion Creates Motion. The emphasis is on the journey rather than the destination, on understanding the impulses generated by movements and gestures.

Originally from Argentina, Anabella Lenzu is a dancer, choreographer and teacher with over 25 years of experience working in Argentina, Chile, Italy and the USA. As Artistic Director of Anabella Lenzu / Dance Drama, her choreography has been commissioned all over the world, for opera, TV programs, theatre productions, and by many dance companies. Anabella has written for various dance and arts magazines, and published her first book in 2013, Unveiling Motion and Emotion.

Tsai Hsi Hung, (Taipei, Taiwan) graduated from Taipei National University of the Arts in 2009 and travelled to Australia as an exchange student for the Dance at Queensland Technology University Dance Department. She has worked with the Australian Dance Theater, Tasdance, and Chunky Move Dance Company Dancers. While in Australia, Hung appeared on the TV show "So You Think You Can Dance."

Hung is also active as a choreographer. In 2012, Hung wrote the choreography for the Beijing TV show "Passion for Dance." Meimage Dance commissioned her to choreograph a solo piece entitled Bluebeard, which Hung performed throughout Taiwan in the summer of 2016. Her choreography was also featured at Baruch Performing Arts Center's REVERBdance series in 2017. In June of 2018, the MET Dance company performed Hung's work IO for 12 dancers at the Miller Outdoor Theatre in Houston, Texas.

Tsai Hsi Hung is the director of the QBC Company (Queens Ballet Center Company). QBC is a versatile ensemble drawing on a wide range of influences from traditional Chinese dance to modern contemporary. Hung's choreography reflects her experience as a dancer, painter, and stage designer and has been performed throughout the United States as well as China, Taiwan, and Australia. Her work explores the nature of opposing forces, where the dancers represent aspects of a person's mind or the conflict inherent in relationships. This is depicted on the cosmic level as well, in larger scale pieces that invoke a feeling of ritual.
