Biography

Josephine Ng has been sharing her knowledge and experience in theatre with the students of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts since 2000. She has conducted English enrichment classes and organised various cultural events for international students at the Hwa Chong Institution (formerly known as The Chinese High School). She was also part of the Education team at the Singapore Discovery Centre which engages schools through their innovative programmes.

Since the age of 10, Josephine has been captivated by the beauty and elegance of Chinese Opera, particularly the Shaoxing Yue Opera and Huangmei Opera, and had taken numerous classes to learn the art forms. Her determination reached fruition in June 2007 when she played the female lead in The Chinese Opera Institute’s Huangmei Opera, The Female Consort, at the Esplanade Recital Studio.

It is Josephine’s aim to infuse her students with the same sense of respect and enthusiasm for the arts, and her life motto, “nothing is impossible”.
