Wings of the Hundred Viet - Canh Chim Bach Viet
Home About Us Photos Share! Performances Contact Us
Wings of the Hundred Viet Dance Company is a not-for-profit cultural group formed by Vietnamese youths, most of whom have grown up in the U.S. The purpose of our organization is to preserve and spread Vietnamese history and culture through performances that portray the myths, legends, and historic events of Viet Nam.

We hope to contribute to the growth of the Vietnamese community here, in honor of the country we left behind. Although we have left the land, we have brought our community with us, a community based on shared ancestors, a shared history, and a shared language. These things are remembered and celebrated through the dances performed by Wings of the Hundred Viet.

An important part of our community engagement is to provide a summer program for youth at no charge, introducing the younger generation to Vietnamese traditions, history, and dance. Through our performances in the community, we foster a spirit of volunteerism in our members.

We also strive to develop leadership skills in our young members. Many of our junior choreographers have broadened their activities to include leading cultural dance projects at their own schools, churches, and community groups.

The group welcomes your correspondence and participation. We especially extend our invitation to Vietnamese youths who would like to join our group. Help us continue to bring the beauty of our culture to the world, and to keep our culture in your heart.

In addition to our cultural dancing, we also offer Dancersize classes for adults aged 40 and up. Join us Fridays from 1:30-3:00pm at the Vietnamese American Community Center (2072 Lucretia Ave, San Jose - 408-794-6552).
Join Us!

 

Come be a part of the community! We are now accepting applications for the Fall 2017 program from persons age 13 to 30 interested in dancing, choreographing, or contributing behind the scenes in any way.  This is a free program, and no prior experience is necessary.

Practice runs from June through August 2017, and then performances run from September 2017 to May 2018. We take a break in December, then resume practice in January 2018 for the New Year performance season from February through April.
