Arts in Education
Performed by professional dancers from Dance China NY, our assembly program is the best you can find outside of mainland China. It presents the beauty of Chinese dance with full costumes, authentic music, and interactive segments that will engage your students in a fun and educational way.
NYCCC offers individually-designed residencies, workshops, and after school programs in dance, martial arts, language, and visual arts to fit your schedule, budget, and other requirements. Teachers, trained in Chinese dance, Beijing opera, language, kung fu, and visual arts, are available for all educational needs, ranging from beginner to professional levels.
School of the Arts
New York Chinese Cultural Center's School of the Arts offers a comprehensive curriculum of Chinese dance, martial arts, Beijing opera acrobatics and weaponry, Chinese language, ink brush painting, and paper cutting for students of all ages. Learn how to artfully master the sword or ribbon, how to create works of art out of brush and paper, or simply how to stay fit! With so many choices from beginner to advanced, there's sure to be a class that's right for you! All classes are grouped according to age and skill level.
Students participate in an annual student recital in June and at a showcase in December. There are also many opportunities for students to perform at our public events throughout the year.
NYCCC had its virtual Lunar New Year Celebration show on February 14th with 8 performances of Chinese ethnic dances, lion dance, kung fu, Chinese music and singing. Senator Chuck Schumer, Council Member Margaret Chin and Consul General Huang Ping joined our show to share their new year's greetings with our audience. After the performances, we had fun workshops for participants to learn Chinese dance, kung fu and Mandarin language. The show and workshops were all free and open to the public.
