multicultural performance in jackson county

WCU Campus Activities present Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company at the Bardo Arts Center Tuesday, February 5th at 7:30 pm. Elegant and captivating, the Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company melds ancient Chinese forms with modern dance in an artistic and inventive marriage of styles. Artistic Director and Choreographer Lily Cai, a former principal dancer with the Shanghai Opera House, draws on her cultural heritage to create visually-stunning dance, performed by her all-female professional troupe.

The performance moves from the ancient to the modern, blending the beautiful artistic traditions of China with Lily Cai’s unique contemporary choreography. The performance is one of variety and many moods, including dances inspired by the Chinese dynasties and fan dances, the haunting Candelas dance with lit candles and the Company’s signature work – the exhilarating, vibrant, ribbon dance Silk Cascade.

The community and other students are welcome to the event. Tickets are $5 for WCU Students. Ticket for others are $10 for non-WCU students, WCU Faculty and Staff; and $15 for general admission. For tickets and group sales, please contact the Bardo Center Box Office at 828-227-2479 or online at
