Although this international dancing team members are from different countries, grow up in different culture backgrounds, and skilled in different forms of dance, now they were gathering together to learn, to feel and to enjoy modern dance every weekend, and studied the basis and choreographing in Modern Dance. Many international students grew bruises on their arms and legs because of high-intensity training every week, but no one gave up.

At first, each student gave a short self-introduction in Chinese, and audiences all applauded for their excellent Chinese expression. When the music began, every dancer quickly devoted themselves into the music, spun and moved according to the rhythm. Both the music and the movement expressed the international students’ emotions and feelings when they first came to China.

                       走进国际化课堂系列报道之四:外国留学生参加现代舞基础与编创公开课

2017年4月9日至5月21日,华中科技大学艺术教育中心为我校外国留学生开设了现代舞基础与编创课程,由我国青年舞蹈家刘畅老师授课。每周日下午2点半至5点半,我校30余名外国留学生在西八楼401舞蹈训练房进行专业的舞蹈训练。

开设舞蹈课程的信息一经发布,我校外国留学生们踊跃报名,积极参与,迅速组成了一支国际化舞蹈团队。在这支队伍中,虽然每位队员来自不同的国家,拥有不同的文化背景,擅长不同形式的舞蹈,但每周日下午,大家相聚在舞蹈课堂,共同学习现代舞的基础与编创,体会、演绎并享受现代舞的魅力。每周高强度的训练导致许多学员在训练结束后身上出现了大面积的淤青,但出于对现代舞的热爱,留学生们从未喊疼喊累,而是准时准点参与课程学习,积极配合老师的教导,课堂气氛十分融洽,大家也在学习之余结交到了许多志同道合的好朋友。

经过两个月的辛苦排练,刘畅老师为留学生编创的舞蹈《Hello》于2017年5月21日在西八楼401进行了公开汇报演出。艺术教育中心以及国际教育学院的领导和老师们来到现场观摩课程展示和汇报演出,舞蹈房内气氛热烈,座无虚席。在汇报演出的三个节目中,来自韩国、巴西、喀麦隆等10个国家的12名外国留学生团队第一个上场。大家首先用中文逐一进行自我介绍,在场的老师和同学们纷纷鼓掌以示赞许。随后,伴随着音乐的渐渐响起,队员们迅速进入状态,全身心投入到音乐的世界中,随着音乐的节奏旋转、跳跃,向大家淋漓尽致的展现了外国留学生初到中国后的渴望与憧憬,举手投足间充分演绎了现代舞的美好和魅力。

演出结束后,老师们和学员们亲密的坐在一起,畅谈关于本次活动的感触。外国留学生们踊跃发言,纷纷表达了对学校的感激,特别是感谢艺术教育中心和国际教育学院能给予他们这次学习及表演的机会,并且特别感谢了舞蹈老师刘畅、国际教育学院严薇老师以及艺术教育中心罗德瑞老师为组织本学期的课程付出的辛勤劳动,并表达了未来继续积极参加学校各类艺术课程的美好愿望。艺术教育中心赵根成书记、国际教育学院留学生办公室主任兰行行等参加了此次公开课汇报演出。
