Ribbon Dance of Empowerment: Chinese Dance through the Eyes of an American
Intertwining Chinese dance, history, and culture with personal storytelling, Ribbon Dance of Empowerment tells a story of Chinese Americans in search of identity, belonging, and self acceptance. When the dancers wield ribbons, they are empowered to command the majestic dragons within them.
This educational yet entertaining production not only brings to life China's long history and diverse culture through a collection of traditional dances - it also features an original mini dance drama exploring the rarely-told experience of Chinese Americans growing up in the South.
