Welcoming the Chinese New Year with Dance Workshops in Schools

At VG Dance Workshops, we embrace cultural diversity and celebrate the traditions of various communities worldwide. Our Chinese New Year Dance Workshops offer schools an exciting opportunity to ring in the Lunar New Year with vibrant performances and engaging activities. Through rhythmic movements, colourful costumes, and cultural exploration, we aim to inspire students and foster a deeper appreciation for Chinese culture and traditions.

The Festive Spirit of Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is one of Chinese culture's most important and festive celebrations. It marks the beginning of the lunar calendar and is observed with various customs and traditions, including lion dances, dragon parades, and fireworks displays. At VG Dance Workshops, we bring the joy and excitement of Chinese New Year to schools through dynamic dance workshops that showcase the beauty and richness of Chinese culture.

Benefits of Chinese New Year Dance Workshops in Schools

  • Physical Activity: Chinese New Year dance workshops offer students a fun and energetic way to stay active and healthy while learning new dance routines and movements.

  • Creative Expression: Through dance, students are encouraged to express themselves creatively and develop their unique style, fostering confidence and self-esteem.

Our Approach to Chinese New Year Dance Workshops


At VG Dance Workshops, we strive to create an authentic and immersive experience for students, incorporating traditional Chinese music, costumes, and choreography into our workshops. Our experienced instructors guide students through a series of dance routines inspired by Chinese culture, helping them connect with the traditions of the Lunar New Year in a meaningful and memorable way.




We had the pleasure of Vivian visiting our school to deliver a multicultural week of workshops to our infant's school children, nursery to year two. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, Vivian was extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the events and the styles of dancing. We were so impressed with Vivian, that we then booked another workshop in the same term. Vivian, upon his return, again was outstanding. The children were very lucky to have been taught by Vivian.

Exploring themes of tradition, unity, and celebration, we help students develop a deeper appreciation for different cultures and traditions, fostering a more inclusive and harmonious school community.

School Assemblies and Showcases

Our dance workshops can be a part of school assemblies and showcases where students can demonstrate their newfound skills and talents to their peers, teachers, and parents. These events provide a platform for students to shine and celebrate their achievements in front of a larger audience, fostering a sense of pride and community within the school.
