Atlanta Chinese Dance Company
Atlanta Chinese Dance Company (ACDC) educates and entertains audiences about Chinese dance, history, and culture. Founded in 1991 by Hwee-Eng Y. Lee and co-directed by Hwee Eng and Kerry Lee, the troupe has enchanted audiences of diverse backgrounds through numerous original full-evening Chinese dance performances, educational lecture-demonstrations, and workshops for performing arts centers, schools/universities, libraries, senior centers, arts festivals, international days, corporate events, military observances, Asian community events, and more. Most notably, ACDC helped showcase Atlanta to the world as performers in the opening and closing ceremonies of the Centennial Olympic Games. For more than a decade, they performed the “Chinese variation” in the Atlanta Ballet’s The Nutcracker.
