The Wa is a transnational ethnic group in Asia, residing across Myanmar and China. Enthusiastic and unrestrained, the Wa people are known to be great dancers, not just with their hands and feet, but with their hair too. As a result, dance has become one of the key characteristics of the Wa ethnic group.
This talk and demonstration will be conducted by Ms Wu Jing, an experienced instructor who teaches at the Yunnan Arts University Affiliated Art School, China. She holds a Master’s degree in her field and has an extensive knowledge and expertise in the Wa ethnic dance.
Be sure to catch the Performance Showcase as well, taking place at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre!
