Bian Lian is part of a three century old National Chinese Treasure and tradition originating from Sichuan, China. It is such a closely guarded secret that Hong Kong pop
singer Andy Lau learned Bian Lian from a master only after paying the grand sum of $360,000 US dollars. 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 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.
