Celebrate Chinese New Year 2010 with the Chinese Folk Art Workshop at Their Dance Extravaganza – Saturday, February 27th @ 3:00 p.m.
Join Boston’s youth, ages 12-18, as they celebrate the Chinese New Year through native music and dance. The students of the Chinese Folk Art Workshop will present their authentic renditions of traditional performance rituals such as Dragon Dance, Lion Dance, Taiwanese Drums, Chinese YoYo, and more. You can visit their web site for further information including descriptions of these dances and rituals, reviews, and photo albums.
The Chinese Folk Art Workshop enhances local community awareness of Chinese culture with over 30 performances a year. It is their mission to encourage Chinese-American youth to develop and share with others, their innate talents in the field of traditional Chinese performing and visual arts through their series of regularly offered classes. Their most valuable cultural achievements within the Boston community were officially recognized in 2005, when the workshop was certified as a Gold Youth Organization through the President’s Volunteer Service Award Program.
