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 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 service.
