YA-LE Dance Troupe


雅乐舞社介绍/Introduction

雅乐舞社成立于2009年,因汉字“乐”既可做“乐(le)”,又可做“乐(yue)”,所以舞社的宗旨定为寓雅于乐(lè),闻雅于乐(yuè)。雅乐舞社每年排演二到三个舞蹈,舞社以中国古典舞、中国民族舞为主,也会为春节晚会排演现代舞。雅乐舞社诚挚欢迎喜爱舞蹈的朋友加入我们!

Ya-Yue(雅乐) Chinese dance troupe is a non-profit student group. We are dedicated to bring Chinese folk/traditional dance and culture to Yale and the outside community. We perform two to three dances every year at the Spring Festival Gala hosted by ACSSY (Association of Chinese Student and Scholars at Yale) and other occasions. We welcome everyone who is interested in Chinese folk/traditional dance to join us!
