Our class is made up of students who have been learning Chinese for almost six years. Our yearly performances are an opportunity to show the results of their hard work in learning about the Chinese language and culture. They are excited to show off some of the dramatic tai chi moves that they have learned as part of traditional Chinese music instruction. Not only is this a fun thing to learn, it is part of a healthy lifestyle. They also love the drama associated with performing for others.
Chinese New Year is coming soon. My students are so excited to learn about Chinese culture as it relates to Chinese New Year. This is one of the biggest, most engaging celebrations in China. It is also a huge celebration at our elementary school. Every year, my students are so excited to be old enough to learn the Chinese tai-chi gongfu fan dance. In order to help my students to learn this amazing and dramatic Chinese dance, they need fans that can highlight the Chinese tai-chi gongfu. What is really exciting is the loud sound that is made when the fans are flipped open. The students are so exited and so is the audience!
