Zy Dance Studio was founded by former soloist dancer and renowned instructor Shi Zhongyi. Following a career with ballet, Chinese dance and contemporary dance companies in Shanghai, Singapore and Germany, Zhongyi spent a decade coaching at the national-level Shanghai Dance School before becoming dance master at the Shanghai Opera Dance Company.
