The Art of Chinese Dance is a multi-cultural, interactive dance program with dazzling costumes and fantastic props. The dancers bring young people on a journey to explore one of the most ancient cultures in the world. Detailed narration on the background and inspiration of each dance enhances the educational experience, with audiences learning the history, geography and the basic practice of traditional dance.
Audience participation is included and encouraged during the program. Selected students/audience members are invited on stage to learn how to dance with silk ribbons. For school presentations, a study guide is available to the teachers before the performance. This program is a great way for children and adults alike to become excited about Chinese culture and gain a better appreciation of the value their Asian friends and families bring to America. The Art of Chinese Dance is not a main stage performance, it is specifically designed with K-12 schools, community centers, and libraries in mind.
“Your presentation was truly amazing. It was both engaging and informative. The students were encouraged to participate several times during the show and they also learned the history behind each type of dance. We were also impressed by your talented and energetic dancers, who conveyed a sense of pride and passion in what they do.”
