Dance is our specialized area, and most dance works are specially tailored and create to the UK audiences. We have included many styles of Chinese traditional tribe dances, e.g. Ribbon dance; Fan dance; Mongolian; Dai and Tibetan dance etc...

Chinese Cultural Activities
While China become the fastest growing country in the world. It draws so many attentions toward its history; economy; culture and of course problem. More and more schools and colleges in the UK are boosting their curriculum with Chinese related topics and cultural activities; enable the students to understand each others' differences.
Throughout the years; we provide Chinese cultural activities to schools; libraries and museums.
All artists are trained at home country and working in the UK. This would directly benefit not only the art forms as well as students' understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture
What can we offer:
Chinese Variety Show
Over the past years, the annual Chinese New Year Festival becomes important part of the company. We have been successfully running these festivals for seven consecutive years. We invite overseas artists from China together with local artists to perform in schools and communities. The past exiting programme has included acrobats; Changing Face; Dragon dance; Chinese music and traditional dance as well as Martial arts. The highly skilful and entertaining programmes always become the central attention of the events, and applause by the UK audiences.
The company regularly creates new dance works which derive from the fusion of Chinese cultural influences combined with the social and cultural issues that inform our experience of living in the UK.
