2. 2014 CUODA Dance Show

In the Spring of 2014, Cambridge University Oriental Dance Association (CUODA) is proud to present our first annual Dance Show. Revolving around the wondrous theme ‘Silhouette’, new pieces span across a multitude of dance forms, from traditional to modern and fusion. This high-energy, provocative concert features a range of styles, including fan dance, sleeve dance, Dai dance, classical dance, contemporary, hip-hop, k-pop and tai chi. It will become a stage of creative expression, sensory enjoyment, and a vehicle for cultural celebration.

For CUODA, it is a perfect opportunity to engage with new audiences as well as to perform to our dance fans. Moreover, as an entirely student-directed show, it is designed to showcase student choreographers and dancers and has taken us months to prepare! Doubtless, it is going to be a spectacular night, so get your tickets quickly before the production sells out!
