Description This course focuses on a traditional form of Korean fan dance.

Korean fan dance also called Buchaechum is one of the most popular traditional dances in Korea performed by a group of female dancers wearing hanbok, a Korean traditional dress. The dancers create natural shapes of flowers, butterflies and waves using the peony-colored fans. Students will master a simple piece of Korean fan dance throughout the course.
