Annie Liu (劉心悠) will be making a cameo appearance as starlight fairy (星光仙子) in a Christmas show (胡桃夾子) organised by Hong Kong Ballet (香港芭蕾舞團). Other than going for training in Hong Kong Ballet, she also engaged a private ballet instructor to teach her ballet skills: “A stage play is considered a holy place to me and it is disrespectful to the audiences if we perform poorly.”
Annie expressed she practised including split leap for 6 hours daily in order to improve her flexibility. Her tears came down as it was painful to do the stretching exercises: “Although I exercise and do yoga frequently, but the flexibility is insufficient for ballet and it is extremely painful to do stretching exercises each time. The ballet instructor assumes I cannot do it but I can withstand it.” Performing ballet in a stage play had always been Annie’s dream and she felt happy that it was finally granted.
