Students of Songhee Lee, Lotus's Drums Along the Hudson 2007, Inwood Hill Park, NYC 


Korean Traditional Dance consists of court dances, religious dances, and a variety of folk dances. While the highly stylized court dances displayed important dimensions of discipline, grandeur, and elegance to create "aestheticism of the inner spirit," folk dances, especially mask dances, showed spontaneity, humor, freedom and satire. The dancers use more of their shoulders, arms, hands and heels, with very little leg movement. The most distinguishing features that pervade many forms of Korean dance are the creation of a feeling of suspension (particularly using the feet), the feeling of heaviness and curvilinear shapes, and an ongoing quality of energy.
