Julie Ng is the youngest interviewee for the “Research Project—Oral History of Hong Kong Dance Development”. However, as she started her professional career at a young age, the period of her activities in the dance sector overlapped with that of the other interviewees. Ng choreographed numerous dance performances for the film and TV industries; her work introduced dance to the Hong Kong public through mass media and made an important contribution to the dance sector. She was also a key member of the pioneering modern dance organisation Hong Kong Ballet For All (Ballet For All). The performances of Ballet For All opened the door for subsequent development of modern dance in Hong Kong.
