The Dong Fang Dancers wish to promote Chinese performing arts, facilitate Chinese-American cultural exchange, enrich cultural life, and stay youthful and vibrant. We are mainly focused on Chinese national and folk dance, but also perform modern and folk dances that blend Chinese and Western styles.

The Dong Fang Dance Group is part of the Dong Fang Chinese Performing Arts Association based in Naperville, Illinois and performing all over Greater Chicago. The Dong Fang dancers have given over 30 performances with a history in Chicago going back ten years, with founding members dancing together formerly as The Yellow River Dance Group. There are currently over 30 members who train weekly in a professional dance studio facility, working on basic skills, various styles, and group performance.

Dong Fang Dancers at all levels find inspiration in the following

  • You don’t need to dance better than others; what you need to do is to dance better than yourself.
  • If you can walk, you can dance. (African proverb)
  • Dance is the hidden language of the soul. Martha Graham
