Chinese Dance

Annual Lunar New Year Production

“Better than CCTV’s Chinese New Year Show!”

-audience member, 2017 “Keepsakes: A Chinese Love Story (青花缘)”


CAAM CDT is honored to have partnered with the O’Shaughnessy Auditorium for almost 20 years to bring spectacular, dazzling Chinese Dance to Minnesota audiences every Lunar New Year. Past productions have sampled from the dance traditions of multiple Chinese ethnic groups, celebrated the beauty of flowers, and explored the intersect between Chinese drum traditions and dance. Every production is a fantastical, colorful explosion of sound, music, and artistry.
