Dance Theater

Since 1992, CAAM Chinese Dance Theater has served families and delighted audiences with some of the best locally-produced Chinese dance in the country. We are a community-based organization under the artistic direction of a world-renowned choreographer and teacher. A division of Chinese American Association of Minnesota (CAAM), the oldest, largest Chinese American community organization in Minnesota, we perform to 17,000 live audience members annually. In running a dance school, presenting annual concerts, and performing outreach programs, we have become the largest Chinese dance organization in the Midwest.

“I just wonder how many similarly community-based arts organizations would attempt to mount a show of this size and scope in a single evening. What’s more, how many could pull it off so well?” ~Donald Huttera, Asian Pages dance review
