我的未來將與舞共伴!姚勇舞蹈加油!






人們常說美國的生活猶如寂寞的天堂,而這句話對於我們愛跳舞的姐妹們卻是相反,自從我參加姚勇舞蹈學院學習中國民族舞以來,感覺無時無刻都充滿著期待、快樂和幸福,無論工作有多忙,壓力有多大只要跳上一個小時的舞蹈,那種愉快和幸福讓我每一天都是happy ending!

        小的時候看見漂亮的阿姨們在台上跳舞的時候就無比地羨慕、崇拜,覺得沒有比這個更美的啦,從來沒有想過在美國我可以跟最棒、最專業的舞蹈老師學習舞蹈,特別珍惜,有舞蹈的相伴生活也非常充實,收穫也特別大,在這幾年學舞的過程中我增強了體力、鍛鍊了意志,培養更加積極樂觀的人生,我們不僅跟老師習舞,同時也學到老師們一絲不苟的教學態度,為了把我們這些非專業的舞迷們培養成型老師們真是不容易,但是老師們從沒有放棄對我們的嚴格要求,認真且細緻入微教學讓我們天天有進步,每半年的彙報演出我和舞伴們無論是在舞蹈的技巧上,還是表演上都更有進步!感謝老師們孜孜不倦的教學!感謝舞伴們讓我學會相互合作和默契配合!

        姚勇舞蹈學院是姚勇老師親自創辦,並與太太王關姗老師一起為傳播中國的民族舞蹈辛勤耕耘著,為我們這些愛中國舞蹈的同學們編織著美麗的舞蹈夢想!兩位老師都是畢業於北京舞蹈學院,中國舞蹈的最高學府。他們在灣區將近20年的舞蹈教學過程中姚老師、王老師培養出無數的學生,桃李滿天,在海外弘揚中國民族舞蹈貢獻卓越!近幾年姚勇舞蹈學院積極參加了海內外的舞蹈比賽並且獲得很好的成績。

        2016年"文化中國·海外華人中華舞蹈大賽"決賽於11月9日至12日在深圳華夏藝術中心舉行。姚勇舞蹈學院的【鴻雁】在200多個初選舞蹈中取得最後回國比賽資格,【鴻雁】是姚勇老師的原創舞蹈, 舞蹈即優美、流暢,又大氣、豪爽讓人感受到茫茫原野上一群大雁在空中翩翩起舞意境。此次有11位美雁在姚勇老師的帶領下來到中國深圳參加比賽,經過激烈角逐,榮獲群舞銀獎!為海外華僑爭得榮譽!我很榮幸參加了《鴻雁》班和11位美雁回國比賽,對於我們鼓勵非常大!收穫也很大,這次的活動讓我們對舞蹈更充滿熱愛,姚老師還帶我們去深圳藝術學院舞蹈系參觀學習,讓我們見識到什麼是專業舞蹈訓練,學生們的基本功讓我們贊嘆不已!

      今年8月第四屆全球華人中華才藝舞蹈大賽美西賽暨2017世界舞蹈之星比賽剛剛圓滿結束了!今年共有57個個人和集體舞參賽。姚勇舞蹈學院的舞蹈《夢入桃花源》一舉拿下三個大獎~永春之星組一等獎、所有參賽舞蹈二等獎、姚勇老師最佳原創編舞大獎!可喜可賀!這個舞蹈讓我們這些女書生門在台上帥極了!祝賀姚勇舞蹈學院!祝賀老師!祝賀舞伴們!

   我的未來將與舞共伴!姚勇舞蹈加油!

Chinese people often think that life in the US is a boring one. Yet for those of us in the Chinese folk dance community, life is anything but boring. Ever since I joined Yao Yong Dance School, I've discovered a new sense of hope and joy. No matter how busy or stressed out I am when I walk into class, just one hour of Chinese folk dancing helps bring my day to a happy end.

When I was young and saw Chinese folk dancers for the first time, their grace and beauty captivated me and filled me with a deep sense of admiration. I felt I had never seen anything as exquisite as those dancers, and that this must be the pinnacle of beauty. I never dreamed that one day I would come to America and  study under one of the most renowned teachers in Chinese folk dance. I am deeply thankful for having dance in my life. I am never too bored or sad, because of the immense joy that dance has brought me.

Through the years dance has enriched my life in many ways. I've not only improved my physical fitness and learned many dance techniques, I've also adopted my dance teacher's resilient, positive attitude and self-discipline.

Our class makes up for our lack of professional training with dedication and passion, and our teachers at Yao Yong have matched us in spirit and drive. They have always held us to the highest standards, and as a result of everyone's hard work, our class has seen improvement everyday. This is most evident at the bi-annual recital, where we always feel how far we've come both in technique and stage presence. Everyday I am thankful to my teachers for all their dedication and hard work, and to my wonderful classmates for all their support and cooperation.

Yao Yong Dance School was started by Yao and his wife to promote Chinese folk dance in the US. Both were trained at Beijing Dance Academy, China's most prestigious dance school. Over the past twenty years, Yao Yong Dance School has trained numerous dance students. For us Chinese folk dance devotees, this has been our gift.

In addition, Yao Yong and his wife have done much for Chinese folk dance outreach overseas. In the last few years, Yao Yong Dance School has participated in several international dance competitions and won numerous awards.

In 2016 out of 200 teams, our team was selected to represent the US at the Chinese Culture Abroad dance competition in Shenzhen, China. We placed second overall for our Mongolian piece called "Red Geese". I am so proud to have been a part of this group and discovered an even deeper love for my team and the art of dance. Teacher Yong even brought us to the dance school in Shenzhen for a private workshop, allowing me to see how professional Chinese folk dancers approach their art. Our memorable trip to Shenzhen has deepened my appreciation for Chinese folk dance.

This year at the fourth world dance competition 2017 in the US West category, Yao Yong's "Dreaming in Peach Blossom Spring" placed second overall out of 57 teams in the Group Dance category, first place in the Forever Young Star group, and outstanding award for original dance choreography to Teacher Yao Yong.

I hope to continue my dance journey with Yao Yong Dance School for many years to come.
