Chinese New Year 2019 at the Confucius Institute U.S. Center

Tuesday February 5th marked Chinese New Year and the beginning of the Spring Festival. The Confucius Institute U.S. (CIUS) Center hosted an Appreciation Luncheon on the following Friday for our partners, community connections, and leaders in Washington, D.C. After remarks by CIUS Center staff, including a past honoree, we welcomed the guests to enjoy catered food (which was delicious!).

The main event was a classical Chinese dance performance. The dancer was phenomenal. Our guests then got to participate with a specialized dance lesson! From students from George Mason University to European Union representatives, attendees tried their best to replicate the grace and expertise of our trained dancer. As a dancer myself, I found witnessing and participating in this experience very fulfilling. It is no question to me that through art, music, and dance, we can better share our cultures. After all, you do not need to speak Chinese to learn classical dance styles or enjoy Chinese music!

Through discussions throughout the event, we were all able to network and build further relationships with like-minded, but different, peers and professionals. We would, again, like to thank everybody who attended. Chinese New Year already has a new, special meaning to me after only working at the CIUS Center for two weeks.

新年快樂 (Happy New Year!)
