Wonderful professional level facilities for dance training! So happy to come back every year! Big spacious studios and a large practice stage help AGP grow better every year! The studios can tend to get slippery.

We came here to watch another Musical Wicked this time. There are local Productions held as well most times. It's not as big as the Asia expo. There is a coffee corner for us to grab a cup of coffee and a quick bite too.

tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the
highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more
polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart.
