Chung Wah Dance was formed in 1980, with the objective of promoting and preserving Chinese culture not only within the Chung Wah Association but also in multicultural Australia.
Performers are volunteers, they train every Saturday at the Association’s hall in James Street, Northbridge. Any fees charged by the Troupe go towards the teacher’s fees and costumes.
The troupe regularly perform classical and contemporary Chinese dance at a wide range of community events and special celebrations, including Chinese New Year. Performances vary from the classical “Han” and minority dances to contemporary Chinese dances. The Troupe has performed at many venues and events, including the Oz Concert on Australia Day, Chinese New Year Festivals and various other multicultural festivals in Perth and around Western Australia.
