Chinese classical dance is an ancient art form that is as old as China’s 5,000-year history. It has been carefully passed down from teacher to student throughout the ages. In every dynasty, it has been performed and taught in society, seen in palaces and among all civilized company. It plays an integral role in Chinese theater and is a true performing art built upon traditional values and morals.
The Second International Chinese Classical Dance Competition will be hosted by New Tang Dynasty TV (NTDTV). Hundreds of professional dancers from Europe, the Americas and numerous Asian regions, including mainland China, Taiwan and Japan, have registered for this competition, all from from various arts academies and performance groups.
This NTDTV dance competition restricts participants to only traditional Chinese dance forms while encouraging the creation of new dance pieces. It will be divided into four parts: the Male Adult Division (18 to 40 years of age), the Male Junior Division (14 to 17 years of age), Female Adult Division (18 to 40 years of age), and Female Junior Division (14 to 17 years of age). Each division will award one grand prize, one second prize, two third prizes and three additional prizes for honorable mention.
The competition accepts solo, duo and trio performances, with each dance required to be within two minutes in length. In the first round, the participant’s original piece will count for 70 percent of the total score. In the second round, in addition to their own creation, each dancer must give a one minute demonstration of basic dance skills, such as jumping, turning and flipping. The final round also requires one full minute of freely combined basic moves. The competitors are allowed to change their dance piece for the second and final rounds.
