Exploring the rich traditions of the celebratory festival of Chinese new year and the flamboyant colors.
The Chinese dance workshops introduce the ancient traditional Dragon dances to the children learning expanding their knowledge and creativity in the workshops.
The Chinese dance is performed to scare evil spirits and to bring good luck, fortune, and wisdom. The children will learn about historical facts and traditions of the Chinese culture experiencing authentic Chinese dance styles with beautiful hand sequences and gestures, techniques working with their peers to create art.
These Chinese dance workshops are aimed at EYS, KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4.
We offer Half day (3 hours) or whole day workshops (6 hours) to all ages and abilities across the UK.
When structuring the workshop day we are happy to work around the school timetable, but we suggest that an appropriate timing of between 30 minutes to 90 minutes works well for each class.
