Dance Enhance 2011 ran between October to December 2011. In its 3rd season, this round was an intermediary level course specially designed for emerging dance critics who have previous experience in dance criticism writing. On enrollment, each should submit an article to demonstrate their skill level and writing style. Lecture and mentorship were given by established critics and artists including Dr. LO Wai Luk, Natalia CHAN, Stella LAU, Dick WONG, CHOW Fan Fu, Kuh Fei, Daniel YEUNG.
Two new fringe activities were added in 2011 to introduce to the participants a more holistic approach to dance appreciation: In "Conversation with Choreographer," Jacky YU gave participants insights of how a creation was perceived and planned. In "Set as a Symbol," stage set designer YUEN Hon Wai explained the functional and aesthetic values of stage set in dance productions.
Participants should prepare an article (not less than 1,000 words in Chinese or English) after viewing each performance. Articles were sent to senior dance critics or mentors for further reference and comments. Outstanding articles were published in dance journal/hk and the Hong Kong Dance Alliance website.
