Leading Chinese American dance groups in New York City are holding a forum on promoting cultural diversity and inclusion through dance education on Saturday.

The "Dance Forum II," running from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Queens library in Flushing on June 16, is jointly hosted by the Flushing library, Asian American Dance Sport, Chinese Theatre Works (CTW) and New York Rudance School.

The first such forum was held in 2016 and the gathering was a great platform for dance artists from Chinese communities across New York City, Kuang-Yu Fong, CTW executive & co-artistic director, told the Xinhua News Agency. 

Sophisticated Chinese American dancers will demonstrate the beauty of different dance forms such as Ballroom, Modern, Broadway Jazz and Chinese while sharing their understanding and instruction experiences of various dance arts, Kuang explained.

They will discuss ways and means of helping Chinese communities better integrate with other cultural groups through the art of dance and dance education that can cross barriers involving language, culture and nationality, said Kuang, who moved to New York in 1983.

The forum will be supported by the New York Chinese Cultural Center, Broadway Dance Center and Cross Move Lab, a contemporary dance company.
