Our Mission
TCCDC has developed essentially since it was established in 2002 with growing support from a variety of individuals, communities and organizations in Minnesota. We gained high reputation in the communities for professional instructors and curriculum setup, high quality performances and reliable operation. TCCDC held quite a few successful performances such as the 2009 annual production (Dance of the Joy) and the 2010 Mother’s Tribune show. Furthermore, TCCDC also dedicated to out reaching and improving communities diversification through out all kinds of concerts, dance competition as well as local theme events and performances. Speaking of excellence and high level of performance, five students from TCCDC brought back three first-place and one second-place trophies from the North American Dance Competition in May of 2010.

With the quality, diversity, and social responsibility, TCCDC is truly the most promising Chinese dance center in the Twin Cities.
