To the students of Van Lang who love art:
"I also used to be a student, there have been days when going to school, studying and pursuing a passion for dancing, there was both difficulties and challenges, but when you love it, just go ahead and pursue it, art is very magical. The more you understand, the more you will love, the more you want to go with it." - Alexander Tu said.
