The Dance Festival was first launched in 2012 and is now celebrating its eighth year. By presenting world-renowned dance works to Chinese audiences, it has built a platform for exchanges between Chinese and foreign dance arts, and promoted the vigorous development of the art in China.
NCPA Dance Festival 2019 will be held from August 8th to December 7th, featuring 15 performances in 34 sessions by 12 top dance troupes from China, Italy, Russia, the UK, and Czech Republic, in which classical and modern styles communicate with each other in nimble body languages. This year the focus is on the intensive display of Chinese dances, including original dances that tell Chinese stories, and traditional dances full of national sentiments. With these, we prresent the underlying values of China and convey our interpretation of the Chinese Dream as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the PRC.
