MS FELICIA ER

Guest Teacher, Choreographer

Ballet is not something you can master overnight, it requires years and years of rigorous training to master the art of it. To me, learning ballet not only teaches you the art of it but it also teaches you many other fundamental things along the way. I am very grateful to have started ballet from young as it taught me how to be disciplined, determined and diligent.

Currently an Artist with Singapore Ballet, Felicia started dancing at the young age of four. She first started off with Ballet and gradually exposed herself to more genres like Contemporary, Hip Hop and Jazz. She was accepted into School of The Arts, Singapore at 13 and specialized in Dance. Felicia was awarded the RAD Summer School Scholarship at 14 years old to attend the International Summer School 2015 in Sydney. During her 4th year in SOTA, she was selected to go to New Zealand School of Dance to attend their 2-week winter school. She also had the opportunity to attend Australian’s Ballet School summer intensive the following year.

Felicia was offered to embark on the International Baccalaureate Career-related Program (IBCP) in SOTA at the end of 2016 but kindly rejected it as she was offered a place in Singapore Ballet’s Scholars Program 2017. After training in the Scholars Program for a year, Felicia was offered a traineeship with Singapore Ballet in 2018.

Ever since Felicia joined Singapore Ballet as a trainee in 2018, she has had plenty of opportunities to perform in numerous repertoires. These include George Balanchine’s Serenade, Romeo & Juliet, Paquita, Don Quixote, Giselle, Coppélia, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.

Felicia is currently partnering with Jitterbugs to work on getting her CSTD Teaching Certification in Classical Ballet. She is thrilled to be embarking on this journey to teach Classical Ballet to the younger generation and cannot wait to share the knowledge she has obtained over the past 16 years to all of her students.
