Duke Chinese Dance (DCD) is an organization of students with a passion for presenting Chinese dance and culture to the Duke, Durham, and surrounding North Carolinian communities. There are 52 minority groups in China, each emerging from centuries of civil war and cultural exchanges that inspire unique art and dance styles. To showcase the incredible complexity, creativity, and diversity of Chinese dance and culture, we have expanded our repertoire in the past few years to feature minority dance styles alongside popular Han ribbon and fan pieces, as well as more modern fusion pieces. We host auditions at the beginning of every fall semester for those interested in trying out for the team.
is proud to feature our 2017 showcase, SYNERGY. In appreciating that what we achieve together is much stronger than what we accomplish simply alone, DCD celebrates the unity that arises from our differences. Our group is home to 42 individuals who've come together through a shared interest of Chinese culture and performance, but add different elements to our dances. Through SYNERGY, our 11th annual Showcase, we hope to embody the value that a group brings together to the stage and community. Please join us Friday, April 14 at 7PM in Page Auditorium as we perform this year’s dances. The event is FREE and has been funded by DSG, CEF and SOFC.
