2022/2023 MASTER CLASS & WORKSHOP SERIES
WITH MFA CANDIDATE JEREMY YUAN
In Chinese Dance, we will experience the ancient Chinese culture and the contemporary ethnic culture of China. Chinese dance includes Chinese classical dance and national folk dance. Among them, classical dance contains many elements of Tai Chi, martial arts (Kungfu), Chinese opera, and prop dance.
Based on the Chinese professional dance school settings, Chinese folk dances mainly focus on five major minority(ethnic) dances, such as Dai dance, Tibetan dance, Mongolian dance, Xinjiang dance, and Han dance.
