Family Program
Ancient Chinese Arts Today: Fan Dancing
Sunday, March 15th, 2015 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
$15
(Members $10)

Chinese fan dancing can trace its roots to the days of the Han Dynasty in China over 2,000 years ago and the tradition continues today. During this workshop, families will discover how movements evoke feelings, create images, and tell stories while learning a group fan dance. The lesson is taught by a professional dancer from the New York Chinese Cultural Center and will incorporate some simple Chinese vocabulary.

Tickets to this program include Museum admission and families are welcome to visit the special exhibition Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion.
