CAAM Chinese Dance Theater Presents Journey to Dunhuang
January 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
One event on January 30, 2022 at 2:00 pm
Annual Lunar New Year Production
Chinese dance draws from more than 56 diverse ethnic groups, traditional Chinese opera, martial arts and ballet. While challenging to master, Chinese Dance is also great fun! Think of it as ballet, modern dance, rhythmic gymnastics, martial arts, acrobatics, and more, all rolled into one. The costumes are usually very colorful, and many dances use props, such as fans, swords, ribbons, long sleeves, umbrellas, and hats. There are two broad categories of Chinese Dance: Ethnic/Folk and Classical/Traditional. CAAM CDT teaches both.
CAAM Chinese Dance Theater is dedicated to preserving, celebrating, and sharing our Chinese cultural heritage and enriching the cultural life of all Minnesotans through the universal language of dance.
In this spirit, CAAM CDT is pleased to offer free and low-cost performances throughout the year. In order to receive the most up-to-date information about upcoming performances and events, please like us on Facebook by clicking https://www.facebook.com/CDTCAAM/

CAAM CDT is honored to have partnered with the O’Shaughnessy Auditorium for almost 20 years to bring spectacular, dazzling Chinese Dance to Minnesota audiences every Lunar New Year. Past productions have sampled from the dance traditions of multiple Chinese ethnic groups, celebrated the beauty of flowers, and explored the intersect between Chinese drum traditions and dance. Every production is a fantastical, colorful explosion of sound, music, and artistry.
