The Ballad of Hua Mulan Dance Performance

For the last 3 weeks my son has been attending a theatrical dance camp through our local performing arts school.  In the camp the dancer’s focus on their artistic expression with theater and dance.  They are learning storytelling through dance.  How cool is that? They learn the choreography in three weeks and at the end of the three weeks they have a performance.  The first week of camp they audition and are casted for various roles. The boy was cast as Mulan’s father, a Soldier and Turkish Emperor.

This year they presented “The Wood Orchid: The Ballad of Hua Mulan”.  It is based on the legend of Mulan but not completely.

The dancing, the costumes and the lighting was gorgeous.  They all did such an amazing job bringing Mulan to life through dance.  It is amazing how they can put together a dance performance in three short weeks.  The dancers, the choreographers and lighting techs all did an amazing job! Bravo!
