Compare and contrast Chinese classical dance and European Classical ballet.
The main topic of my research paper is comparing and contrasting the difference between Chinese Classical dance and European Classical ballet. The questions I will develop in the paper included as follows.
The first one is the difference of movement between Chinese classical dance and European Classical ballet.
The second one is the difference of performance between Chinese classical dance and European Classical ballet.
The third one is the difference of tools they use on the stage.
The method I used is “comparing and contrasting”, reading article and doing research
The main findings are that I’ve show the difference between Chinese …show more content…
