Chinese Folk Dancing

Last night we attending a performance by the Chinese Dance Troupe. It was absolutely amazing! The drums were so loud Ivy said they sounded like "fireworks". The Dragon dance was spectacular. We all learned so much about the Chinese culture watching the show and taking part in the interactive workshop afterward. It was a very special night that we enjoyed so much together! We haven't stopped talking about it. Devin now wants to get a drum and Chinese yo-yo. Dakota & Ivy want drums and ribbons for Chinese ribbon dancing. This experience really expanded our interests and introduced us to another culture that was so beautiful and exciting.

Dayna - I *love* taiko drums! SO powerful. I've played West African drums for a while now, and I hope to one day learn taiko. I'm so glad you got to experience that! Love to see drumming shared, and I'm glad it spoke to your kids.
