Chinese Dance:
Chinese dance draws from more than 56 diverse ethnic groups, traditional Chinese opera, martial arts and ballet. While challenging to master, Chinese Dance is also great fun! Think of it as ballet, modern dance, rhythmic gymnastics, martial arts, acrobatics, and more, all rolled into one. The costumes are usually very colorful, and many dances use props, such as fans, swords, ribbons, long sleeves, umbrellas, and hats. There are two broad categories of Chinese Dance: Ethnic/Folk and Classical/Traditional. (fromĀ www.caamcdt.org)
