Through dance classes we introduce Chinese heritage to the children from China
and children of Chinese families.
HOW WE WORK
Dance Beijing collaborates with schools, libraries, community
centers and adoption agencies to conduct Chinese dance classes at the location of the collaborating
organization. Dance Beijing provides the
teachers, curricula and music. All the dances used in the classes are
arranged and choreographed by Dance Beijing.
Through a progression of songs and dances, the dance classes teach hand
movements, foot steps, breathing method, body stance and coordination.
The emphasis is on balance,
In the class for small children, the teacher teaches
also Chinese for the beginners: "How are you?",
"It is OK", "Let's try again", "We are
friends", "Let's dance", ........
