About
Chinese Dance Classics 2017 – The Chinese Dance Annual Tour was jointly sponsored by the Chinese Dancers Association and NCPA (National Centre for the Performing Arts). Excellent award-winning works were selected from the 11th China Dance Competition for the “Lotus Award” (award granted to a national professional dance appraisal activity initiated by the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, approved by the general offices of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, guided by China Federation of Literary and Art Circles and sponsored by Chinese Dancers Association) and the 9th “Xiaohe Elegant Demeanor” National Children's Dance Show (it is approved by the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee and led by China Federation of Literary and Art Circles) to form the “annual tour show.” The event covers classical dance, folk dance, modern dance, contemporary dance, dance drama, dance poetry and other types of dances, with a view to reviewing the creation of Chinese indigenous dances in 2017 and prospering dance creations by implementing a quasi-policy for cultural and art development with “awards.”
