Hey there, I’m Kian Keong. I’d never expected myself to be so passionate and involved in ballroom dancing, coming from 15 years as a volleyball player. Interestingly, it’s now the most natural thing in the world for me!
The late Professor Winston Koh was the one who inspired me to take up the challenge of ballroom dancing. He was an avid ballroom dancer and knew my brother, Kian Yong, well. My brother was one of the founding members of Ballare, and in fact, taught Prof Koh ballroom dancing. He recognised me at a dancing competition (I was there as a spectator) and came up to chat. He challenged me to give dancing a shot… and here I am.
