CADCAI MOLIHUA DANCERS "Molihua" or "Jasmine flower" is the name of a widely known classical Chinese folk song.
On their first cultural exchange to Cairns' sister city, Zhenjaing, members of the dance group learned the Molihau dance by which they performed at the closing ceremony of their study tour. Since then, the Molihua dance has become the group's signature dance which they often perform at festivals and public events. The group officially adopted the name "CADCAI Molihua Chinese Dancers" in 2009
