As many as 30 performances will participate in the first professional dancing competition of ethnic minorities in the northern region.
The announcement was made by People’s Artist Ung Duy Thinh, Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Dancing Artist Association (VDAA), at a press conference on November 21 in Hanoi.
The competition, co-organised by VDAA, the Literature and Art Association of Vietnamese Ethnic Minorities, aims to honour dancing works on Vietnamese ethnic groups.
It also serves as a platform for composers, choreographers and artists to exchange experiences, particularly in composing art work on Vietnamese ethnic groups, while contributing to the orientation of the future Vietnam’s dancing development.
To date, the organiser has received 30 entries, most of which are dances in group. They will be staged from November 27-28 at Au Co Performing Arts Centre, Hanoi. The awards ceremony will be held on November 28 evening.
A workshop relating to folk dance of ethnic groups and professional dancing works will take place on November 29 morning as part of the competition.
The competition for the southern region will be held in 2017.VNA
