Goldsmiths Confucius Institute for Dance and Performance

Ni hao! Welcome to the Goldsmiths Confucius Institute for Dance and Performance (Goldsmiths CI for short). In summer 2012, it was founded in collaboration with Goldsmiths, University of London, Beijing Dance Academy, and Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters.

Goldsmiths CI is the first and, currently, the only Confucius Institute in the world dedicated to dance, performance and the arts, as well as the first to use professional arts platforms to promote Chinese language and culture.

Goldsmiths CI has launched a joint BA programme in the college and offers Mandarin as an optional and credit course to other departments. It also provides short courses covering mandarin Chinese, business Chinese, martial arts, Chinese dance and, Chinese instruments etc. As the first HSK e-testing centre in the UK, Goldsmiths CI has successfully run HSK proficiency tests as well as HSK courses. Other activities such as summer / winter camp, Chinese teacher training courses and cultural workshops give participants the best possible opportunities for language learning and cultural education. Here at the Institute we also strive to bring the Chinese language & culture to a wider audience by establishing Confucius Classrooms with local schools.
