Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) is set to hit Penang on May 16 to perform classical to contemporary pieces. We caught up with SDT’s passionate senior artist and lifelong dancer, Chihiro Uchida, for a chat.

How early did you start dancing? Who or what inspired you to put on your dancing shoes?

I started taking ballet lessons when I was two-and-a-half years old. From the moment I could walk, I would dance in front of the TV with any music that was playing, so my mum thought of letting me put on my dancing shoes and attend class. I ended up loving it and have been doing it ever since.
