      The Chinese-American Dancing Group was formed in 1987 by Dr. Jaw John Chang. 

     The dance group promotes Chinese culture, raises multicultural awareness, and provides a professional training center for its children, teen and adult dance classes.  Dr. Chang has successfully created its own Chinese Dance Training Program and offers a "Ten-Level Examination on Chinese Dance" for every class.

     The Chinese-American Dancing Group has participated and performed in numerous ethnic and cultural activities.  The group is well known for its excellent performances and has annually showcased its own major dance productions since 1991.  Through meticulous research and choreography, each dance piece is expertly taught to display the authenticity and beauty of Chinese culture.  It is no surprise that Dr. Chang was granted the "Flying Phoenix Award", Taiwan's highest dance instructor award in 1998.

     Additionally, the Chinese-American Dancing Group proudly owns two 50-feet long leon dragons accompanied by a fifty-person team.  The team is often asked to perform in major televised parades and open-theater performances.  The Chinese-American Dancing Group also supports the community by offering demonstrations and seminars.  Many schools have also benefited from its services.

     華裔樂舞立於1987年, 創辦張肇壯博士
    

    華裔樂舞教授一系列富有獨特藝術構思與鮮明民族舞蹈風格的舞蹈;亦可說是傳統中國舞蹈的「保存」與「轉化」結晶,它不僅強化「當代民族的意識」與加重「先進的舞蹈技巧」的創新外,還刻意要求繼承固有傳統形式的連續性,盡量保留祖宗遺留給我們有限的傳統舞蹈文化,為我們下一代提供中華民族舞蹈文化的正確認知。

     這二十五年來,「華裔樂舞」除致力推廣與普及民族舞蹈外,諸如間接促成「美國華裔舞蹈協會」的成立,長期發展增加「舞蹈人口」計劃、培養舞蹈人才,成功促使部分美國主流高中對中國舞蹈訓練課程的確認,創辦「中國舞分級文憑考試」,編制「中國舞元素教學法」,推展民族舞蹈的考究、發掘與創作等課題,以及書寫與出版有關舞蹈的著作等,均能獲得好評。
