Celebration of Chinese Culture

The performing arts center was packed with students Friday night. Ms. Qian had arranged for a presentation by the Chinese Folk Art Workshop, Inc.
Hands-on activities in the foyer included calligraphy and making Chinese hacky-sacks, dragonflies, and clay figures.
The outstanding performance that followed included many forms of Chinese dance and folkdance, drumming performances, lion and dragon dances, and Chinese yo-yo demonstrations. While the Chinese Fold Art Workshop claims that its members range in age from 12 to 18, their performances were professional and exceptionally entertaining. Small children in the audience, high school students, and adults alike broke into spontaneous applause throughout the performance as we were delighted and transfixed by the myriad talents of these young people.
