She cares deeply for her students and is always looking for ways to push them to grow – be it by leading from example, or from care and encouragement.
When it comes to choreography, Fei Fei is a master of visuality. What makes her so unique as an artist is her remarkable melding of dancers and props that create striking visual and intricate pieces. Her most characteristic items involve bold utilisations of the stage with vibrant cloths that act as dynamic extensions of her dancers’ movements. Each use is necessary and deliberate, allowing her choreography to transcend the space of the stage, amplifying the emotional force of her creations. There is an unmistakable dynamism of movement, visuality, and texture, that makes Fei Fei’s pieces distinctly hers.
Ultimately, for Fei Fei, a successful and meaningful choreography is one that is able to find resonance with others. To fulfill this vision, she draws inspiration from her own life, imbuing her pieces with fundamental human emotions that her dancers and the audience can find relatable.
Fei Fei’s creativity also extends to the field of literature: as she is the author of a children’s book, Secret Garden – The Amazing Life of Caterpillars. She has gained her students’ utmost respect not only because of her exceptional skills, but also the warm personality that is to care for her students and the people around her.
