The Beauty of Dance, Part Five: Charmene Yap, Sydney Dance Company, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Charmene Yap is a prominent figure in the Sydney Dance Company, the most prestigious contemporary dance troupe Down Under.

A 2006 graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts in Perth, Ms. Yap  has appeared in numerous works since she joined the Sydney Dance Company in 2010.  Her credits include Rafael Bonachela's 6 BreathsLANDforms, and The Land of Yes & The Land of No.  Among others.  She's also toured  Russia and the Western Hemisphere as part of an ensemble performing Bonachela's 2 One Another, a dance merging spirited choreography with pulsating modern music.

Fun fact:  Ms. Yap's performance in 2 One Another earned her the Outstanding Performance by a Female Dancer prize in the 2013 Australian Dance Awards. :-)
