The Moonlight Chinese Dance Association/Group (ref. as Moonlight ) was established in June 2003 by a group of Chinese folk dance lovers to promote the development and appreciation of Chinese dance and culture in southern California. Members unite from diverse backgrounds, from scientists, doctors, and computer engineers, to financial consultants, entrepreneurs, and CPAs. Our missions are to unite local people who appreciate Chinese arts and music, and to promote cultural exchange between Chinese community and other communities.
Moonlight performances include ethnic folk dances from Han, the majority ethnic group of China, and other minority groups, such as Dai, Zang, Yi, Meng, etc. Featuring traditional Chinese dance style and mixed with modern dance choreography, the dancers wearing bright colorful costumes and dancing to whimsical Chinese music to portray the lives of Chinese people and their love, joy and hope. Artful and fun promoting, the Moonlight dances delight both Chinese and American audiences.
Since its foundation, the Moonlight has seen tremendous growth, and continues to broaden its appeal. Dancers from Moonlight successfully performed in more than 50 local and international culture events, shows and special occasions. Among them, include annual appearances at the Chinese National Day celebration, Nations of San Diego, International Dance Festival, Asian Follies Bergere Summer Quest, BRAVO Performing Arts in San Diego, ACCEF Hands to Hearts Charity Showcase, Multicultural Festival, and San Diego Dragon Boat Festival. Special guest appearances included the 2008 Balboa Theater Grand Reopening Preview and 2008 Mexico Chinese New Year Celebration.
With passion, joy and dedication from all of our members, with encourage, support and appreciation from all audiences, the Moonlight Chinese Dance Group will grow with a bright promising future.
