China Dance Development
With Hong Kong's reunification with China in 1997, CCDC has repositioned itself as "a Hong-Kong-based dance company endeavouring to bring together the best of Chinese talents to create dance for contemporary China".
Since 1985, our Artistic Director Willy Tsao has already started teaching modern dance workshops in various cities on the Mainland, including Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhan, Fuzhou, Kunming and Taiyuan. He subsequently helped set up the first 4-year Modern Dance Diploma Programme at the Guangdong Dance School. From 1992 to 1998, he was invited by the Guangdong Cultural Department to be the Artistic Director of Guangdong Modern Dance Company (GMDC), the first professional modern dance company in the mainland China.
After 1997, CCDC embarked on its China Dance Development Programme. Further on the groundwork we have laid on the mainland, we hope to enhance collaboration with mainland artists. Armed with CCDC's artistic vision, administrative and marketing experiences, we wish to mobilise the resources and talents in the mainland and Hong Kong to complement with each other. There are three main goals that we would like to achieve:
  • To encourage original and innovative creation while maintaining a standard of excellence; 
  • To enhance the appreciation for modern dance through long-term educational activities; 
  • To promote international dance exchange and help to build a new cultural image for mainland China and Hong Kong.
