Summary: Summary: THE AMERICAN CHINESE ART SOCIETYThe American Chinese Art Society (ACAS) was founded in 1984 to preserve excellence in CHINESE ARTS as part of America’s rich cultural resources. To that end, ACAS has provided training for young artists and has sponsored concerts, festivals, and exhibitions. Over the last decade, ACAS has laid the foundation for our next generation to learn and practice their artistic heritage. In addition, these talented young artists have shared this culture through frequent performances all over the New England area.ACAS is organized as a non-profit organization with a volunteer Board whose members all have strong skills in community services, FINANCE and planning. Our mission is to promote Chinese culture and to strengthen the cultural exchange between the Chinese and American communities. ACAS has been able to nurture and preserve authentic and original Chinese traditional arts through the tireless efforts of our gifted volunteer artist producer and choreographer.Beside the Chinese Dance Summer Workshop, ACAS has three major activities. First, it provides over 30 classes for the Traditional Chinese Dance Troupe from September through June to study authentic Chinese dances. Children of ages 7 and above are selected to these PROGRAMS through an audition. Second, ACAS will perform these arts for diverse audiences each year through numerous (more than 20) short performances to community groups and schools. In addition, there is always a large-scale professional quality production performance at Boston University Tsai Performance Center each year.
