(CNA) Two Taiwanese choreographers took second and third place in the 3rd Cross Connection Ballet International Choreography Competition (CCBC) in Copenhagen, Denmark on April 2.
Huang Yi's "Whisper" and Chou Shu-yi's solo "Start with the Body" beat out all but one of some 140 competitors from around the world who took part in the event.
Chou won the Sadler's Wells award last year with a performance titled "1875 Raveland Bolero" at the renowned London dance theater.
Huang left a message on Facebook after taking second place in which he thanked everyone for their help and blessings. He said he especially wanted to dedicate his honor to choreographer Lo Man Fei, a renowned dancer who died in 2006.
Both Chou and Huang received support from the Lo Man Fei Dance Fund, a program to support young talent in dance related fields.
The CCBC held the competition on April 2, and it will honor the winning performances at a Gala event on Saturday night. (By Sunnie Chen)
