We did a short lion dance performance for the families and students at Saturday's belt graduation, in celebration of Chinese New Year!
We had a couple of performances at Vannoy Elementary School yesterday to start off Chinese New Year. It was a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed it (teachers too!) The youngest lion is 6 years old..... and she's been performing for almost 2 years now! Last night we did another performance at the school. Lots of lion dancing :-), and more to come! Gong Hay Fat Choy!
We did 3 lion dance performances yesterday! It was quite a busy day. We will perform another one today after the belt graduation at approximately 4:30 pm. Gong Hay Fat Choy!
Gong Hay Fat Choy! Welcome to Year of the Dog, the 11th of the zodiac animals. The dog is an auspicious animal. If one comes into your house, it symbolizes the coming of fortune. Those born in Year of the Dog are usually independent, sincere, loyal and decisive. They are not afraid of difficulties in daily life.
Thank you to all the students who helped clean the school today; from the morning students to the night students. The school looks great!
