Chae Hyang Soon Dance Company

Handed down from generation to generation, the movements of Dynamic Korea: Dance & Song reflect the essential rhythms of traditional Korean dance. The exuberant yŏtt’aryŏngch’um (Taffy Peddler Dance) walks audiences through the bustling marketplaces of Korea, while meditative, deeply symbolic performances such as the hwahyŏnmu (Lotus Dance) and sŭngmu (Monk’s Dance) explore the country's deep Buddhist roots. From the gentle, gliding grace of the opening chaech’ŏnmu (Chosŏn Court Dance) to the upbeat drumming and dancing of the changgoch’um (Hourglass Drum Dance), the dancers and musicians of the Chae Hyang Soon Dance Company are animated by the strength and energy of the Korean tradition.

brings the core traditions of Korean dance to brilliant life. Reflecting the contrasting rhythms of life in Korea, this remarkable company of dancers and musicians is alternately exuberant and meditative, gentle and thunderous. Their work symbolically reflects not only the bustling marketplaces of Korea, but the country’s deep Buddhist roots. A thrilling performance, animated by flair, grace, rhythm and vitality.presents Dynamic Korea: Dance & Song, a performance by Chae Hyang Soon Dance Company on Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 3pm at Queens Theatre in the Park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Flushing, NY.
