Li Chiao-Ping Dance



LCPD produces and promotes original performance works and commissions of diverse arts forms, including modern/contemporary dance and music.


We provide education, training and performances in combination with diverse art forms to inspire artistic potential and life applications of art.


Collaboration with contemporary composers and designers gives LCPD a wide range of pieces.


We strive to reflect Li Chiao-Ping's unique movement vocabulary and choreographic style, as well as her ongoing search for exquisite and subtle gestures and risk-taking athleticism.


Inspired by Ms. Li's Chinese-American heritage, LCPD continues making multi-layered works which combine movement, sound, and visual imagery to explore themes of culture and identity.



Li Chiao-Ping Dance is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization. The generous support of our patrons makes future performances of Li Chiao-Ping Dance possible. Help us out.
