LION DANCE: Its History in DC, or Finding the Inner Lion
As the Chinese New Year comes, so do the lions! The cymbals! The drums! The acrobatics! Oh my! But, how do you know a good lion dance from a mediocre lion dance? What is its history in DC? And, what does it mean to the inner lion (meaning the guy or gal within the beast)? Join us for a Talk Story Event led and demonstrated by Raymond Wong and the Wong People Lion Team.
Attendees Please Note: If the H street level door is locked, enter by going through Gallery Place (through the theater and bowling alley) to second floor of the complex using the escalator. When on the second floor, continue pass Clyde’s and around Aveda Institute to the end of corridor.
Talk Story Events are organized monthly by the 1882 Foundation, OCA-DC and the Chinese American Citizens Alliance in collaboration with Chinatown Community Cultural Center, Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association and the Chinatown Service Center / Chinese Community Church. The events are free and open to all. Questions and RSVP to Ted at firstname.lastname@example.org , or Stan at email@example.com.
