This new approach to traditional Chinese Ribbon Dance combines modern, folk, and soul music with the excitement and beauty of flowing streamers. Over ten activities which can be adapted to the needs of students pre-school and up, be modified for special education or enhanced to challenge the gifted. Streamer and Ribbon Activities do not require the use of partners thus allowing individuality to surface.
Ribbon Dance is based on an old, colorful Chinese dance. In this version, each performer hold a ribbon stick and moves the ribbon to the beat of a Chinese chant. Ribbons sticks are varnished dowels with a 12 foot polyethylene ribbon attached. Music is divided into three parts--instruction, practice, and performance.
