Chinese Dance

Youth Programs / Art, Drama and Dance -
Youth Winter/Spring 2024

Chinese dance includes three categories: classical, folk and contemporary. Each session, we take turns to learn from each category alone with flexibility and Chinese dance techniques such as jumping, turning and tumbling.

This class will be taught in Chinese and culminate with a performance in May (more details to follow).

Dancers should bring dance shoes either purchased online or from the instructor for $10/pair.

Hopkins Community Education is excited to provide varying payment options for before and after school programming, our hope is to provide financially equitable programming for Hopkins students. Pick the price that works for your family.
