The Flying Goddess & The Fan Dance - Lily Cai, a Chinese-American, preserves her traditional Chinese culture by performing ancient court dances with a modern flavor. The Flying Goddess is a ribbon dance that represents the beautiful spirit of a goddess. Lessons include the concept of 'classical circles' which serve as spatial patterns traveled on the floor and in the gestural patterns of the dancers, a Chinese Ribbon Dance to learn and perform, and animal-mime dances from a selection of Chinese cultural groups. Enduring Values and Transformation are emphasized.
