Asian Dances
by Carol Hom

We will be learning Apat Apat from Philippine, Chu Ku Wu from Taiwan, Dai Bon Maiden from China, Leggang Knagkung from Indonesia and Tokyo Don Taku from Japan.

Each country through out Asia has their own special forms of dances based on their culture, tradition and history. Life style, social & living environment also play a great role in many ethnic dances. The music and instrument reflect the difference and uniqueness of each region.

Carol has been learning folk dances since her teenage years in Taiwan. In the United States, she continues her study with Gail Barton at CCSF and intensive training at Stockton Folk Dance Camp. Carol has been teaching and performing various folk dances in the bay area for the past 6 years.
