The upcoming Asia-Pacific region preliminaries for the 5th "NTD’s 2012 International Classical Chinese Dance Competition," usually held in New York, will be held in Hong Kong on August 18, 2012, in order to accommodate potential participants from mainland China. The Chinese Communist regime has repeatedly threatened dancers not to participate in the competition. Recently, China’s public security bureau has denied visas to mainland Chinese dancers who want to go to Hong Kong.
(Editor: Some involved with the NTD Chinese Dance competition are Falun Gong practitioners.)
