Ethnic Minority Art Forms Promising in HK Market
BEIJING, September 17-- The head of the Hong Kong delegation attending the Second National Joint Art Show by Ethnic Minority Groups here said the ethnic minority art forms will find a big market in the multi-cultural region.
Chan Po Chu Pearl told Xinhua Monday more and more Hong Kong people who are more familiar with Western culture have become interested in the traditional Chinese culture after the region's return to the mainland.
Over half of those attending the annual dancing contest in Hong Kong are competing for Chinese dancing entries, said Chan, adding that currently there are more than 200 such training programs.
Although they do not have any ethnic minority groups in Hong Kong, the delegation she heads consists of some 80 ethnic minority dance lovers.
The amateur dancers have brought with them 10 performances featuring the dancing styles of different ethnic minority groups in the mainland.
Lo Liu Yiu-chee Virginia, executive director of Hong Kong Dance Federation Ltd., expressed her hope that their mainland counterparts would introduce to Hong Kong special training courses on dances of various ethnic minority groups in the mainland.
