Event Details

Ribbon Dance of Empowerment: Chinese Dance through the Eyes of an American showcases the beauty and diversity of Chinese dance, history, and culture while sharing a rarely told story about some of the nearly 100 American dancers who bring them to life on stage. Intertwining personal storytelling with Chinese dance, it culminates in an original mini dance drama based on Co-Artistic Director Kerry Lee’s personal story – how performing the Chinese ribbon dance hundreds of times has empowered her in her search for identity, belonging, and self-acceptance as a Chinese American in the South.

Mellon Foundation).
