Jang-mi History & Information
Jang-mi Korean Dance, Drum & Music was founded in 1984 and originally called Chang-mi Korean dance. The name spelling was changed and to reflect the modern romanization of Korean hangeul. “Jang-mi” means “rose” in the Korean language, a favorite flower of my teacher, Han, ji-won. This group was formed so children adopted from Korea could have culturally Korean role-models, learn about Korean culture all year round, and have other adoptees to make friends. The Jang-mi leadership is Brooke Jee-in Newmaster, Holly Shin young Knudson and Soo-jin Lee.
Jang-mi makes sure to remember the sole reason this group came into being was because many of us were not able to grow up in the culture of our blood and birth. We will spend a lifetime trying to find it again. Today, Korean adoptees, children of Korean adoptees, their siblings and family members, Korean and Korean Americans, and non Korean people that enjoy learning about Korean culture and arts. Everyone is welcome!
Vision: Jang-mi (Pronounced: Jah-ng mee) Korean Dance, Drum & Music imagines a community where Korean adoptees, their families, Korean and Korean Americans, and non-Korean people can learn about Korean traditional arts and perform them with respect and pride.
Mission: To provide a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment for all to learn about the Korean performing arts, promote pride in Korean cultural heritage and support Korean adoptees and their children.
Classes are held in Saint Paul at: 1330 Blair Avenue North, St. Paul, MN 55104
On occasion we will have classes at the White Bear Lake district center or high school. You will be notified by email when we have a venue change.
If you register for classes in Rochester you will be emailed the address for Monday classes.
Jang-mi students who participate in a one class time pay a monthly fee (due by the first class date each month) of $115. Two class times is $155. Three class times is $175. Half hour classes are included with the hour/hour fifteen classes that are related. -- Please discuss this option with Brooke & Holly if you have questions, as well if you are a new student or enrolling your child. NEW adult students or KAWA & AK Connection members, please email inquires about class placement, fees or other questions at:
Lesson material is accumulative and attendance is important. Of course students will miss a lesson or two because of conflicting activities, family obligations, illness, etc. The student or student's parent/guardian is responsible for letting the teachers know ahead of missing lessons when possible and arranging a make-up class time. Arrangements can be made with the teachers if scheduled within 3 days of the missed lesson and then made up within 2 weeks. Jang-mi performs many times each year for the community at the recital, lunar new year, festivals and events. The lessons are taught so the students can gain confidence in themselves and can enjoy performing! If a student does not wish to perform, that is okay! Each student is different and Jang-mi teachers are mindful to support different learning styles and students with performance anxiety. Jang-mi students are encouraged to participate in performances but will never be forced. Showing our community and families the hard work and pride in Korean cultural heritage is a wonderful thing. Lessons should be fun and empowering. Students and parents should let the teachers know if performance isn’t their goal. The choreography of the dances depend on who and how many performers are in each piece ~ so performance attendance is important for teachers to know in advance. Students can enroll by the semester or by the year and need to attend class regularly.
Class times that are overlapping will practice different material and sometimes be joined together for rehearsal. Please check all that apply. Students are welcome (and encouraged) to observe the other classes. Mentorship and role model opportunities often happen in between the actual lesson times ~ please take advantage of the time we have together for younger kids to spend time with the older kids. Likewise for making fellowship with Jang-mi + AK Connection and K.A.W.A. members. Lessons are designed for learning new material each week as well as continually practicing ongoing pieces.
Gayageum classes are offered Saturday afternoon with Soo-jin Lee. Please email her with any questions! Email:
