Korean Paper Fans
In Korea, there is a traditional fan dance called buchaechum (boo-chay-choom). Female dancers wear traditional dresses and dance with two fans each. Together the choreographed group expresses the beauty of nature through dance by making butterflies, flowers, and ocean waves with their movements and fans. You can make your own Korean paper fan to use for your own fan dance or even as decoration.
