Cathy Leung commenced ballet tuition at a young age in Hong Kong under the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus. After high school, she was accepted into Hong Kong’s premier professional dance academy, the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA). Cathy graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours), majoring in classical ballet.
Cathy has instructed students in various dance schools throughout Hong Kong, including programs developed and delivered through HKAPA, and has volunteered at community centres to lead mobility and dance programs with senior citizens. Cathy performed professionally as a show dancer with Hong Kong Disneyland for over five years, while also working as a freelance dancer for special events throughout Hong Kong, Macau and China.
Since retiring from the stage, Cathy has moved to Australia with her husband to start a family. She enjoys participating in the dance program offered through Canberra Dance Theatre.
