Teacher, Choreographer

I believe that the journey of learning is not just about discipline and technical excellence, but also creativity – nurtured through openness, discovery and courage. It is an honour to work with students of such a high calibre and I hope to instil in them, the fearlessness and humility of a growing artist.

Born in Singapore, Shermaine is a graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts, Australia.
