2017-01-25 Dance Ontario Danceweekend
We were thrilled to perform the Canadian premiere of the rarely seen tribal dances from the Wa nation at Dance Ontario’s 2017 Danceweekend. The Wa people are an ethnic group that lives mainly along the border of Burma and China. They are proud to call their culture the infancy of mankind, as they have passed down their heritage unchanged for hundreds of years. We visited their location in China and were absolutely thrilled to the floor by their energetic and exuberant choreography. In this particular afternoon we presented three staple pieces of Wa dances: the Hair Sway, the Drumming and a duet piece. Please follow us on Facebook for more information and timely updates.
