Raphael lau

Contemporary Dance Teacher

Raphael is a freelance dance artist. He started his career in KPMG after his master studies in Physics in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Following his artistic interest, he completed the Diploma in Dance Studies in Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and the Bachelor of Arts in Dance in the Cologne University of Music and Dance.

He collaborated, as a dancer artist and choreographer, with different artists and ensembles including DanceArt, Y-Space, TS Crew, Folded Paper Dance and Theatre, E-Side Dance Company, Passover Dance, Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection, Make a Move Collective, MichaelDouglas Collective and Kammeroper Köln. He also engages in different performing art forms such as singing and acting. He participated as a tenor in chorus in productions with Opera Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.

His interest in the body's functionality drove him to become a Polestar®️ Pilates mattress instructor and he continues to explore different practices including Taichi and Xingyiquan. He believes learning and exchanging of these practices enrich the body mind connection and allow the "artistic" and "functional" perspectives of movement to feed each other.
