Choo Chiat Goh and Lin Yee Goh exemplify great mentorship and leadership in the artistic world of dance. After immigrating to Canada nearly 30 years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Goh established the Goh Ballet Academy. Many young British Columbians have passed through their doors, inspired by their passion for excellence in ballet and their focus on discipline, hard work and responsibility. Students of this academy have won medals at local, national and international competitions and festivals. Mr. and Mrs. Goh have provided the best environment and training possible and have, in the words of a supporter, “served as a magnet and conduit for multiculturalism and cultural exchange in British Columbia”.
BC Achievement is an independent foundation established in 2003 that honours excellence and inspires achievement in British Columbia.
