Profile Information

Arts Organization
In your own words, what is your ethnic identity? (for individuals)
Oh great... I am racially Chinese, but identify myself as a global mutt. A mix of Chinese, Indonesian, Singaporean, Californian, New Yorker - but also got a mix of Indonesia, Singapore, London, Boston, Hong Kong, and Australia from my parents.
How's that for an answer?
- Alaine Handa
Your Artistic Background/Mission
BA in World Arts and Cultures w/ a concentration in Dance Studies from UCLA
Choreographer, Dancer, Dance Educator, Cross Cultural Consultant, Make up artist. I also dabble in film and love photography (the viewing and sometimes I take decent pics too). I'm very inspired by other art forms, and other cultures.
Your Creative Influences
Alaine Handa and Dancers has a mission: to present and support independent contemporary artists and companies in New York and worldwide. Through collaborations with local dancers and artists of other mediums, Alaine Handa and Dancers hope to share modern dance to communities that lack exposure to it. Ms Handa's movement vocabulary is quirky, athletic, and lyrical.
