Exclusive Interview with Cherelle Shania Tan and Alice Chaise

Cherelle Shania Tan at 11 years old 

1) Please share with us more about your background and what made you decide to join The National Ballet of China and performed for ‘过年 The Nutcracker’?

I am a student of Singapore Ballet Academy (SBA). I started ballet at the age of 3+ and love it very much since then. I love performing on stage since young and has no stage fright.

I came to know about The National Ballet of China & “过年” through SBA.  So I went for the audition and was so happy to be selected.

2) What’s your role in The Nutcracker’?

I was chosen to be the red Ang bao/fire cracker (I am not sure what it is) but the teacher commented I am alittle too “tall” for the costume although I am very good. So most likely I will be the gold coin.

3) Lastly, what would you like to say to the audience who will be coming to watch the show and what can they look out for?

I am sure this Chinese version of “过年” is going to be an interesting and outstanding show. We are looking forward to it. I am very excited to perform with the top ballet dancers from The National Ballet of China.
