Short course: Chinese ribbon and fan dance

Next course

This course will be available next academic term.

Course description

Chinese fan dance or the round fan dance originates from the ancient Chinese court. With a Chinese classical charm, this dance shows the implicit beauty and noble and elegant temperament of women. Round fan dance uses elements of Chinese classical dance movements, absorbing nutrients from traditional Chinese opera.

Chinese ribbon dance is another ancient traditional Chinese art form that incorporates silk ribbon into the dancer's movements. This form of dance was so highly regarded and considered so beautiful that dancers would be requested to perform this type of dance to emperors.

Let these unique dances from China fully awaken your body and help you gain inner peace and freedom.

The curriculum for this unique 10-week online short course was created by our resident dance teacher and graduate of the prestigious Beijing Dance Academy in China.
