For obvious reasons Chinese Dance workshops are in greatest demand in the February and March when schools are running projects about Chinese New Year. Please note that  every year a number of our artists return home to celebrate this festival and are not available for some of the period so its best to book early in advance to avoid disappointment.

Our children’s workshops are a combination of Chinese culture, traditional Chinese dance and folk dancing. We usually ask the children what they know about China and then show and tell them Chinese symbols/objects. Our Chinese dance workshops would begin with a basic warm up, leading to a small routine incorporating Chinese gestures that the children  pick up easily.The folk dance section is where the fun really begins.Our artists teach a variety of Chinese dances including Chinese Ribbon Dance, Chinese Fan Dance and Chinese Umbrella Dance.
