Mulan Quan - a chinese feminine martial art
   


Mulan Dance / Experimentation / Workshop

Cynthia Phung-Ngoc - eventail  

In the Mulan Dance workshop the warmup excercises are the same but the sequence of movements of Mulan Quan once aquired can be danced, expressed, interpreted and improvised freely, guided by Cynthia in space and time. Mulan Dance enriches ones notebook of movements, develops interpretation and imagination. Mulan Dance is an invitation to free expression. Workshops and lessons in Mulan Quan and Mulan Dance are open to all, amateurs and professional performers, but also to those that search well being in movement. It's a good introduction for young and old to the traditional asian arts.
