OUR STORY

OUR VISION

Our vision is to provide the platform for local youths to learn, perform, protect and prolong the Vietnamese culture through our unique forms of traditional dancing, traditional drumming, and lion dancing performances.

WHAT WE DO

Not only we help our members connect to the Vietnamese culture, but also teach them the valuable core characteristics such as respect, confidence, and self-discipline along with high encouragement so each member may value the performances as exciting and empowering. In turn, they then can share these BLESSINGS back with others through our unique Vietnamese cultural performances.

OUR COMMUNITY

Our principle office is located in the heart of Little Saigon, Orange County, California, USA.    It is where the largest Little Saigon in the United States and first-generation Vietnamese immigrants community located; therefore, the large part of our members are second and third generation Vietnamese Americans.  Together with the community, we want to continue providing the platform for our community youths to learn, perform, protect and prolong the Vietnamese culture for future generations.

Thiên Ân Performing Arts 

“Thiên” in Vietnamese means heaven, and “Ân” means blessings. Therefore, Thiên Ân Performing Arts’ (TAPA) mission is to share our BLESSINGS with others through our unique forms of dance, drum, and lion dance. Our performances encompass new elements with the change of time and instill traditional core values that can be applied beyond the dance studio. Moreover, Thiên Ân Performing Arts was established in 2005 with the goal of bringing local Vietnamese youths together, and provide them with the platform to learn and perform various cultural performances. We not only teach dances but also valuable core characteristics such as respect, self-discipline along with high encouragement so each student may value performances as fun and a form of self-discipline. Furthermore, Thiên Ân Performing Arts is a well-established Non-Profit Organization, highly recognized performing group in the community for the past ten years providing a range of entertainment services. We provide traditional drumming, dancing, and lion dancing at Dinner Galas, Dance Galas, Corporate Events, Community Events, Conventions, Upscale and Exclusive Weddings, Private Events and much more.  In addition, we proudly are the go-to-performing group for many big events in the Vietnamese Community of Little Saigon, such as the Tet Parade, International Parade (New York, NY), and Vietnamese Martyr Mass at UCI.
