Dance Program

The goal of the dance education at Fei Tian Academy of the Arts is to revive and promote genuine, compassionate, and beautiful traditional Chinese dance in its purest forms.

Dance instruction at Fei Tian consists of three levels: basic, intermediate, and advanced, each of which is one to two years in length. Divisions of these levels, together with practical performance opportunities, enable students to gradually master the profound skills and knowledge of Chinese dance.

Each level of dance instruction provides training in the following four areas:

  • Techniques of classical Chinese dance
  • Waist and leg techniques for dancers
  • Acrobatic skills for dancers
  • Repertoire of classical Chinese dance, Chinese ethnic dance, and Chinese folk dance

Fei Tian Academy of the Arts also arranges performance opportunities for its students both in the local community and in professional venues so students can gain valuable experience performing in front of a live audience.

Students within the dance program also have the opportunity to explore various areas within the dance field. Specifically, course offerings assist students in pursuing their interests in professional dance and choreography, instruction, and production technology.
