Miller Performing Arts: Iron Fan: Chinese Dance Workshop

  • Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation Unit C, 8/F Wah Ha Factory Building, 8 Shipyard Lane, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong (map)

Hand-held folding fans have a long history in China. They are also an important part of traditional Chinese dance, and in ancient times, metal fans with sharp edges were even used as weapons. The iron fan dance combines these uses, blending traditional dance gestures with martial arts movements.

In this workshop, Yvonne Choi helps young dancers learn traditional fan dance moves and explore how a fan can be used as an elegant, powerful tool for movement interpretation.
