Chinese folk dance is being celebrated both inside and outside of China's territory.

Backed by melodious Chinese folk music and clamorous drum beats, students of different cultural backgrounds and ethnicity enjoy practicing the movements of Miao ethnic dances that they've learned from their teacher. The scene is a Chinese folk dance class at the Tisch Art School of New York University. Students show great zeal to learn a different culture through dancing.

Brian dargiewicz, said, "We're trying to just understand different cultures and you know, get a feel of how other cultures are expressing themselves through movements."

Shayan cooper, said, "I think I definitely changed a lot."

Although they are learning a dance form that is one hundred percent Chinese, their teacher, Aly Rose, is one hundred percent American. She does have a beautiful Chinese name - Luo Hongmei. Graduating in 1996 with degrees in psychology and dance, Rose came to China. She settled in southwest China's Guizhou Province, where she was captivated by Chinese ethnic dancing. In 1999 Rose pursued her interest, coming to study at the Beijing Dance Academy, majoring in choreography. She was the only foreign student that year. Rose graduated with a Master's Degree three years later and has worked at the Beijing Dance Academy ever since.
