Chinese Folk Dance Company to Perform at Hopkins

The Chinese Folk Dance Company will give a performance called "China Patterns" at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 25, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.

This resident company of the New York Chinese Cultural Center will take its audience on a journey from the open prairies of Mongolia to farming villages of the Yellow River Delta to the Imperial Palace of ancient China. Colorful dances feature flashing swords, fluttering fans and soaring silk banners that have the grace and spirituality of 5,000 years of ritual. They are accompanied by traditional Chinese musical instruments reflecting ceremonial, dramatic, martial, and agricultural aspects of Chinese lore.

The Chinese Folk Dance Company performs a large repertoire of classical, folk and ethnic nationality dances and has appeared at concerts, festivals, and celebrations across the country, including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York. This performance is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 35th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. The event is cosponsored with the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
