"Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body."
- Martha Graham
WOW!! Here’s to another wonderful production performance. Ribbon Dance of Empowerment is a production inspired by by my dance instructor, Kerry Lee - yellow skin with black hair seeking acceptance in America and its society. This production speaks volume for many dancers as most or half of the dancers are adopted Chinese children who struggles(d) with being accepted as an American citizen or even to their own kind. Although I am not an adopted child, this production has touched me in many ways and I feel for everyone.
Needless to say, I really was going to quit dancing after this production. I went back to working in the beauty/wedding industry which will take up most my Fridays and weekends however, my heart aches to leave. Luckily I was able to work out my schedule therefore, I will continue to dance for this upcoming production - Spring 2021.

As a former Hmong SEA dancer, I decided to explore the dance industry and became a dancer of ACDC - performing minorities and classical Chinese dances.
