For May 21 2017 Little Mulan Dance Troupe has prepared for everyone a wonderful special dance session. The Great Wall Chinese School Little Mulan Dance Troupe has been around for about ten years. It was established by the renowned dance educator, Ms. Lanwei Ji. During the past decade, these dancers between 8 and 18 years old have been trained in basic dance skills and Chinese folk dance every Sunday in addition to their Chinese education at the school. Through long term training, their grasps of basic dance techniques, Chinese folk dance style, and their performance ability have reached a considerably high level. Many of these dancers are often trained in ballet, rhythmic gymnastics, and figure skating outside of the Chinese school, which provides them with a sound dance foundation and diverse dance skills. The beautiful dances of the Little Mulan Dance Troupe are actively showcased at various holiday celebrations and culture events. Their impressive execution of the Chinese folk dance and Chinese classical dance brings joy and help people to appreciate the beauty within their holiday celebrations and cultural events. On November 6th and 7th, 2015, Little Mulan Dance Troupe was invited to perform at Longwood Gardens for two consecutive nights during the Chrysanthemum Lantern Festival, which attracted thousands of local residents in the Philadelphia and tri-state area. The Little Mulan dancers presented not only the beautiful Chinese dances but glimpse into Chinese culture that local residents wouldn’t normal have the opportunity to experience. Their relentless efforts in promoting and carrying forward Chinese culture in the US through their beautiful Chinese traditional dances have been frequently reported in the World Journal, Chinese Press, Chinese Metro and other local media. At the same time, the Little Mulan Dance Troupe actively participates in nationwide dance competitions at International Dance Challenge(“IDC”) and Groove dance competitions and have obtained countless outstanding awards. At this Spring season, the Little Mulan dancers are blessed with a special performance session coordinated with the Asian Culture Festival at Upper Dublin School District. The dancers will present many classical works. Among them, the Chinese classical dance, “Beauty and Grace” obtained the top Platinum Award, Performance National Challenge Award, Teens Session Best Costume Award, and Global Performance Presidential Award at IDC 2012 national competition; the Folk dance, “Dance with the Mist” was honored at 2016 Groove Competition with top Platinum Award and 2016 IDA Nominee-People’s Choice Award; the Chinese classical dance solo, “The Girl with Makeup” obtained top Platinum and two First Place awards in the category, in Teen Session together with Junior Chinese classical solo, “For the Love of Water Lily” was awarded with top Platinum and First Place in the category awards and in senior session, Chinese classical dance solo “On A Spring Day” was awarded with top Platinum and First Place in the category at 2016 Groove competition. At this upcoming May 21, Little Mulan special performance session, the dancers also will present their new Han Folk dance: “A Great River.” The carefully prepared dances by the Little Mulan Dance Troupe will bring you a splendid and exciting evening.
