CAECC Spring Festival

 

continued

For the grand finale, all the performers returned to a darkened stage, each holding a paper lantern to represent the Lantern Festival, which marks the end of the annual Spring Festival. A parade of glowing lanterns circled the stage, moving up and down like waves, hinting at the circling dragon dance that highlights every Lantern Festival.

Before the audience was allowed to leave, there was one more surprise. In addition to preparing all the students, costumes, programs, and props, the dance teacher had also spent half the night and morning preparing Chinese New Year dumplings for all the audience members. Chinese New Year was now complete.

This year's CAECC Spring Festival, which revolves around the evolution of Chinese dance, is scheduled for Sunday, June 19 in the WCC Morris Lawrence Building.    (end of article)
