Under the direction of Mandarin Teachers Grace Min and Ashley Wu, a group of middle school students recently began training to perform the Dragon Dance. This activity is in collaboration with local educational outreach organizations who invited our students to participate in a competition among international schools. Students, working with professional coaching, learn the rhythms and moves needed to learn the dance.
The official competition runs through January and the troupe will work toward the goal of completing a video of their performance to share. We are excited for this opportunity for our Middle School students to learn more about the culture of China.
