Blue Willow Chinese Dance

Joy Chen presents an educational, lively, artistic program of Chinese dance and history, using traditional dress and music, and photos and images from her travels in China. Small groups can participate with Joy in learning a “harvest” ribbon folk dance.

Her dance repertoire includes traditional Chinese court dances, including striking fan and rainbow ribbon dances, and sword and staff warrior dances. She has adapted a Uighur (Mongolian) courtship dance and the "Harvest Dance.” The multimedia presentation during costume changes explores Chinese history, family life, and holidays.


Joy specializes in educational/cultural dance presentations for schools and cultural groups.
