“Guest of honour and SDT patron, president Tony Tan Keng Yam, who was accompanied by Mrs Mary Tan, took the seats in the front row in the Founder’s Studio to enjoy excerpts from three iconic ballets… All funds raised from the evening will go towards supporting SDT’s efforts in realising this dream.” – Singapore Tatler, 2016
