ExploreAsia: Culture Camp (Monica Villareal)

ExploreAsia camps are designed to engage students with Asian art, culture, and history.

Learn and perform original dances inspired by traditional and contemporary Chinese dance techniques! Students will study the history of Chinese dance, clothing, and costuming, and create their own props to use for the performance. This camp is in collaboration with Dance of Asian America and is recommended for students ages 6-12.
