Chinese Folk Dance Graded Examination Syllabus
Teaching Course

The Chinese Folk Dance Graded Examination (CFDGE) syllabus, the only authorised graded examination for Chinese Folk Dance in China, was compiled by a number of dance professionals from Beijing Dance Academy in 2004.  The syllabus encompasses the 56 ethnic groups in China over 15 grades, including 3 performance grades, and takes into consideration the different stages of mental and physical development of students.

The syllabus emphasises on honing both dance technique and performance skills, so students could enjoy learning, at the same time strengthen their physique and establish greater confidence and higher self-esteem. More importantly, learners get to learn about and experience the different cultures, customs, and characteristics of various ethnic groups in China.

More information on the syllabus can be found on CFDGE official website (in Chinese) at
