Dance

Chinese dance embodies who I am; the spirit, the passion, the intensity, and the excitement of vulnerability in the bright lights plunges me into a place where I am both comfortable and fearless.

I have performed in a range of places, from the Kennedy Center to the Embassy of the People's Republic of China to the Verizon Center. I am a member of the Fairfax Chinese Dance Troupe, which performs across the DMV (DC, MD, VA) area. Up until college, I performed about 20 times a year, usually solo but also duo and group as well. Currently, I'm a member of Traditional Chinese Dance at USC where I had the lead role of Queen of Hearts in our annual show.
