Celebrate Chinese New Years with a Bian Lian performance for your office party or event. Bian Lian is part of a rich tradition originating from Sichuan, China. It is a three century old National
Chinese Treasure, so closely guarded a secret that Hong Kong pop singer Andy Lau learned Bian Lian from a master only after paying the grand sum of $360,000. Only a handful of practitioners actively perform this art form outside of Asia. Dan is a member of this elite group and preserves the rich tradition of Bian Lian with dynamic movements and powerful stances. Each rapid face change in this compelling art represents a different character, and each character assumes his own unique body posture, stance and gait.
Bian Lian is traditionally kept "in the family" and have been passed only from father to son. Dan was consistently rejected by masters of the art as he sought to learn the ancient skills of Bian Lian. Dan's breakthrough eventually arrived when an esteemed master of the art moved towards the end of his life but had no heir to pass his secret onto.
Dan traveled to Asia to learn from this Bian Lian Master who chose to train only Dan. After undergoing an intensive period of training, Dan became a Bian Lian Master. The rest is history. Dan Chan will present and preserve this secret
Chinese art form for the rest of his life. Dan has taken this national treasure to many special events around the world including Chinese New Year's Festivals, Valley Fair's Westfield Mall , Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, corporate events, weddings, Hollywood events, ribbon-cutting ceremonies, BMC, United Airlines inaugural flight to Chengdu the provincial capital of Sichuan province where Bian Lian originated, Sacramento's Crest Theater, and most recently Wild Aid's 2014 Gala attended by Yao Ming and many other notable celebrities. Dan also performs a Chinese cultural demonstration that is even rarer than Bian Lian. Contact Dan Chan Presents today to find out more about this secret.
