Art of Chinese Dance
Curriculum: Dance, Social Studies, Cultural Understanding
Dancers reveal the richness of China's long history and complex heritage as one of the world's oldest and continuous cultures, with over 5,000 years of recorded history. Students will see the agility and courage of the Chinese warrior, the skill and excitement of Peking Opera acrobatics, along with a variety of folk dances which express the character of various nationalities with China. The dancers perform both traditional and Chinese dance as well as original modern dance reflecting the cross-cultural experience of the choreographer, Nai-Ni Chen.
The Performing Arts School provides arts education to students age 3 months to 21 years throughout Northern New Jersey. With classes in all types of performing arts, outreach programs throughout the state, and programming for children with special needs, every donation helps create more opportunities for new artists.
