Doncaster East Evening Centre

The Doncaster evening centre located at Centenary House in Doncaster East, was established in 1994 and has classes on Tuesday evening from 7:00pm (Advanced classes start from 6:30pm).

The centre is run by Senior Instructor Belinda Leong  who has been teaching at the college for over 20 years.  She is supported by committed assistants: Jana Jares, Christina Koh, Pavla Rada, Gabrielle Jang and Lucy Tay. They are very patient and keen to share the health benefits of doing Tai Chi with their students.
