Chinese Ribbon Dancing

England, Scotland, Wales


Bring the colourful swirling ribbons of Chinese Ribbon Dance into your school hall and delve into the traditions, history and stories surrounding these beautiful moves.

Our One Day Chinese Ribbon Dance workshop delves into a world of tradition and explores historical stories through movement. This provides an ideal opportunity to educate children about Chinese hand gestures and their meanings and how dance relates to both everyday life and significant events.

Our workshop will explore Chinese Fan & Ribbon Dance. Chinese dance with its elegant, fluttering fans and delicate poses is also a delight to behold. Bursting into your school hall this workshop is jam-packed full of culture! We will take your children on a ONE DAY DANCE experience not to be forgotten!

"Today went really well and the students really enjoyed both workshops. The stage combat was particularly engaging for the Year 8 boys (as I'd anticipated!) and the GCSE students learnt so much from his session with stage swords and had a great time - as did I! The Chinese Ribbon Dance was enjoyed by students too and looked effective in performance at the end of the day. Please pass along my thanks again!"
