Chit Win (Don Dancer)

Chit Win

Chit Win

Chit Win is 19-years old and has been dancing as long as he can remember.  He is also part of the Karen ethnic group and lived in the same refugee camp as Lay Nyaing but they had different teachers. Chit Win’s teacher was Joka. Chit Win is a versatile dancer with a great deal of experience in the Burmese classical Metha dance. The Don dance is relatively new to him and he has been enjoying learning how to sing in Pyo Karen, a language that he does not speak. He was not allowed to attend high school in Utica so he has been working at a factory that manufactures windows.
