Melody and rhythm are universal languages, communicated through our bodies, voices, and music. This workshops uses traditional Chinese dance styles to introduce students to fundamental techniques in dance performance and analysis, as well as develop students’ skills in collaboration and self-expression. Accompanied by a live musician, students will investigate the relationship between music, rhythm, and movement, and how dance can be used as a method of self-expression.
