Vietnamese Dance Ensemble
The traditional dances of Vietnam are an interpretative story that represents the harmony of Vietnamese cultures and the people. The dances can be divided into line dances and circle dances. Line dances, with one line of men and one line of women, are most typical of representing the planting and harvest celebrations. The dance is a musical interpretation of the young men and women teasing each other as the community works together.
The Dance Ensemble contributes strongly to Melbourne’s cultural landscape, celebrating rich dance traditions from Asia. The Ensemble have contributed to the popularity and success of many events throughout Melbourne, contributing to the promotion of understanding and cultural diversity throughout Australia.
