Traditional Chinese Dance

| Studio 2
Classical Chinese dance is rooted in five millennia of Chinese civilization. Its origins go back to dances in ancient imperial palaces. Classical Chinese dance training includes three main components – technical skill, form and bearing. The workshop will introduce basic Form and Bearing. "Form" includes Chinese unique movements and postures. "Bearing" or in Chinese “Shen Yun” is the inner feeling behind each movement deeply connected to the dancer’s breathing.

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
