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.
