My heart is still filled with so much joy from our show, China in Transition: Chinese Folklore to City Life, this past weekend. I am literally in happy tears whenever I see photos from others and hear them talking about how wonderful the production was - it really was! Thanks so much to families, friends, and everyone who came out to watch and support ACDC perform. It is a honor to be able to dance with Atlanta Chinese Dance Company, gaining and experiencing both dancing skills and culture. Thanks so much to Mrs. Lee, Kerry Lee, board members, and all dancers for making this production a wonderful show and memorable experience for me and many others. I know 18 months of training could be rough but we all ended it with a bang! A friend recently asked me what got me in to it and what do I get out from it. I have always loved dancing and started dancing since I was the age of 10. It's rewarding to me after each performance to see and hear how happy the audiences were and knowing that I am able to bring a good show to them - that, to me is a reward. I look foward to ACDC's next production and see you all next year! Thank you all for your endless love and support throughout the years!
Stay tune for more upcoming photos and videos!!
Yay!!! We are finally coming to the end of our production. We present to everyone, some of the pieces to our 2016 production. 18 long months of training, we are finally reaching the end and are ready to perform. Can you spot me in this photo?

It has been a while since I updated my blogs. I have been quite busy when I got back from my vacation in Thailand.
Again, ACDC performed for the art festival event, Barefoot in the Park, on Mother's Day 2016, in Buford, GA. Sadly, when you are the performer, you cannot capture any photos. For this event, ACDC only performed some of the dances - some not completely exposed. I danced to the opening which consisted of Lantern dancers, drum dancers, children, and the playful Lion.
I did not stay long enough during the event to take any photos or videos other than the very few that I do have.
Happy Grandparent's Day.
ACDC brings beautiful performances to celebrate with each and every grandparent.
Feels like it was just yesterday that I celebrate Chinese New Year with the Atlanta Chinese Dance Company and the Chinese community here in Atlanta.
This year, ACDC presents to you a few pieces to our 2016 production. I danced to the Dun Huang piece of the production. There were plenty of awesome talent shows. The culture, food, merchandises, etc. were awesome!
Words cannot express the feeling that I had the moment prior to dancing on stage in front of hundreds of people, the excitement and pleasure I received from the audiences with their applauses, flowers, and compliments. I am very thankful for the wonderful opportunity I had to perform with Atlanta Chinese Dance Company. For this production, ACDC had collaborated with Global Village and a tradition Chinese dance company in New York showcasing the Monkey King. I grew up having a passion for dancing and wished to be dancing on stage for many people to watch and here I am today, dance my heart out for millions of eyes to see.
Ren and Shen, Chinese Supernatural and Humans; this production consists of four elements: Fire, water, earth, and wood.
