The birth of BEIJING DANCE THEATER in December 2008 created the first contemporary ballet troupe in China and a bright new star in the constellation of dance organizations. The new company brings under one roof the talents of three dance veterans: Wang Yuanyuan (Choreographer and Artistic Director), Han Jiang (Lighting Design) and Tan Shaoyuan (Set Design).
The company boasts 14-18 dancers all trained in ballet – the first such fusion of ballet and modern dance among Chinese companies. The company’s rich repertoire plays on its strengths in ballet, bringing together traditional elements of Chinese culture and dance with ballet and a modern edge.
