The traditional Chinese fan dance is rooted in over two thousand years of history. Since the Han Dynasty, the fan dance evolved into two distinct ways – for civilian dance and for combat. The Warrior fan workshop will draw from this second path, teaching strength, authority, and confidence. Who knew fans could make such an elegant but deadly weapon.
Following a martial arts-inspired warmup, this workshop will begin by reviewing fan techniques from a more strong, combative style. A flow of drills and poses drawing from Kung fu, Tai Chi, and folkloric dance will teach you the essentials of precise and powerful fan work. We’ll put all these moves to the test with a short combination blending these movements with belly dance, creating a unique form of fan fusion.
Please bring any dance fans you may have already if you want to try out the moves with your own props (not fan veils!). One fan per student will be available during the workshop, and will also be available for purchase before or after the workshop.
