New Tang Dynasty Television (NTDTV), with its headquarters in New York City (NYC), will host the International Chinese Classical Dance Competition at New York University from July 6 to 8 in 2007. Due to the independent and outspoken nature of NTDTV, as well as its long-term focus on human rights issues in China, including the persecution of Falun Gong, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has spared no effort to interfere with NTDTV’s events.
Following the overwhelming success of the Spectacular, NTDTV is launching a global Chinese dance contest to promote cultural exchanges and to spread authentic Chinese culture. This is also an opportunity to bring Chinese dance into the world arena, as well as an important step to have Chinese dance included as one of the main art forms in the international dance culture.
From May 20 to May 27, New Tang Dynasty TV (NTDTV) will host the first Global Classical Chinese Dance Competition, which will be broadcast live by NTDTV. Lei Yin, spokesman for the competition’s organizing committee, said that they hope that the appreciation and study of classical Chinese dance will continue to spread throughout the world.
