龙年快乐!Happy Year of the Dragon!

We are welcoming in the Year of the Dragon with a pair of great performances.

On New Year’s Day we had the first of our annual Chinese New Year performances at the Albany Community Center. It was a great success sharing Chinese culture with many of Albany’s youngest. Our youngest girls, our boys class, and the dancers who have joined us throughout the year were amazing in their debut performance.

Come encourage these new dancers and see the exciting dances we have prepared at tomorrow’s performance and parade. You’re also in for a special treat watching the amazing acrobatic feats of SF Circus members.

The performance starts at 10 AM. Come early to get a seat at this blockbuster annual event of the Albany Chinese community at Albany’s Twin Theater. Then join us at noon in parading up Solano Avenue and sharing the New Year spirit with Albany and Berkeley.

We always welcome new students. If the performances inspire you, join us for class.

Glorious Chinese Gala performance

Thousand Hands Dance

Adult Class Performs "Thousand Hands" During Dress Rehearsal

On June 6th we came together for our year end Gala performance. The bustling audience got to watch the dancers show the Chinese and ballet dances they spent the year preparing.  The show was highlighted by “Chuyao”, a dance performed by our director, Ah-lan, herself. Other highlights included the flashing swords of the teenage class, “Old Beijing” with the accompaniment of Ms. Sun Wei, and the guest performance of Xiaohong Weng and Jennings McGown, faculty of Circus Center of San Francisco.

Check back for more pictures soon.
