Often seen in Chinese film and theatre, Chinese Sword Dance is a core discipline in traditional Chinese classical dance training. Evolved from a military training excersie into an elaborate acrobatic dance, this fun and dramatic activity combines martial arts and fencing with dance, drama and excercise to create a unique course and interesting discovery into Chinese performing arts.

Each class is 1 hour 30 mins and covers the principals of Classical Dance and Martial Arts practice. Training prop swords will be provided.
