Founded in 2013, Columbia China Dance is the only dance group at Columbia University that focuses on traditional Chinese dance from around the country. Each year, the club performs a number of shows at prominent cultural events, such as Night Market, Lunar Gala, and the CU TASA Philanthropy banquet. The club holds practices and/or open workshops every Sunday and puts on an annual showcase towards the end of the year. Columbia China Dance hopes to share the beauty and diversity of Chinese culture with the community around it.
