Dance Scroll

舞 is the simplest way to write dance in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

It can also be translated as to dance, to wield, to brandish, or to circle.

舞 reads more clearly as dance in Chinese than it does in Japanese (see our two-character word for dancing if you want to be absolutely clear in both languages).

Dance / Dancing

 wǔ dǎo
Dance / Dancing Scroll

舞蹈 is the clearest way to express the art of dancing in Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

If you are a dancer or love the art of dance, this is the calligraphy selection for you.

Dance Scroll

舞踊 is the most proper term for dance or dancing in Japanese.

The first Kanji means “dance,” and the second means to jump or leap. Together, they are just a strong way to say “dance” (the second Kanji just clarifies the first - nobody will translate this as “dance jumping”).


Classic Chinese

 wǔ zhě
Dancer Scroll

舞者 is the classic or literary way to say dancer in Chinese.

This is probably the most eloquent way to say dancer and the most appropriate for a wall scroll.

 wǔ dǎo jiā
Dancer Scroll

舞蹈家 is the modern way to say dancer in Chinese.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
