Hmong Ethnic Dance
You may have seen Hmong ethnic dances as part of Shen Yun’s performances over the years. These have all featured female dancers. This piece, choreographed and performed entirely by Fei Tian College students, has a surprise. It begins with the ladies dancing in traditional Hmong style, complete with its distinctive rapid, staccato movements. Dancers move to accompanying drumbeats, and the strong sense of rhythm increases the speed, creating a jubilant mood. This melding of movement and melody is the hallmark of Hmong (or Miao) dance, and the jingling jewelry creates a ringing of infectious joy.Just then, the Hmong men burst onto the scene! With their own unique rhythms and beats, their strong movements take center stage. Before long, though, the ladies return for a vigorous grand finale.This piece was part of a Fei Tian College Chinese New Year party produced and performed by students.
