Shuling FisterShuling Fister is a Chinese dance choreographer and performer with the Kentucky Arts Council. She grew up in China and has had a passion for dance all of her life. She received her dance training from professional Chinese instructors. She continues her dance development by traveling to her home country where she works with top-level choreographers and dance instructors.

Shuling performs primarily Chinese classical and folk dances. These folk dances are typically associated with harvest, weddings, festivals and other themes. Props like bright-colored fans, handkerchiefs, umbrellas, drums and ribbons are sometimes used in the folk dances. Shuling has performed at the University of Kentucky Singletary Center for the Arts, Lexington Public Library, Lexmark, Louisville’s Brown Theatre, and for events like Chinese New Year celebrations, the Georgetown Kite Festival, Lexington Mayfest, and school cultural exchange programs across Kentucky.
