CACC Chinese Folk Dance Troupe

About Us

The CACC Chinese American Community Center Folk Dance Troupe was formed at the Chinese American Community Center (CACC) in Hockessin, DE in 1992 with the support of a group of enthusiastic parents.  This group was formed with the purpose of bringing Chinese dance and culture to young Chinese Americans growing up in this area, along with sharing the beauty and richness of the Chinese culture, arts and heritage with the general public.

Our director is Debbie French, and the teachers and choreographers are Chin-Sui Lee and Stella Choi. The dancers range from age 8 to senior high school from the tri-state area (DE, MD and PA).  Practice is held weekly on Sunday afternoons at the CACC.

Our dance troupe has performed on various occasions at many prestigious events including the 2009 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the 2012 London New Year's Day Parade, and will be performing at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration Parade!!!

Our dancers have performed at the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian Institute, the Wilmington Grand Opera House, the Playhouse Theatre, National Theatre, and the annual Autumn Festivals, Chinese New Year's Celebrations and Chinese Festivals at CACC; we have also performed at the Delaware Dance Festival, the Winterthur Museum, Longwood Gardens, the International Children’s Festival at Wolf Trap, the Philadelphia Zoo, at First Night in Wilmington on New Year’s Eve and at the Governor’s Inaugural Gala. 

We are part of the Delaware Division of the Arts Artist Roster.
