Every legend has its history. Every story has its truths. And the best are rarely forgotten. For the past 5,000 years, China amassed a diverse legacy of heroes, myths, and values that still resonate in the present.

Join us on February 11! This workshop takes you on an inspiring journey through audio-slide presentation:

  • Capture the spirit of traditional Chinese culture and the beliefs that are the foundation of traditional Chinese cultural forms, including dance, music, martial arts and education.
  • Experience the gentle elegance and rich expressiveness of classical Chinese dance – pioneers of many other art forms, including acrobatics, Chinese opera and Olympic gymnastics flips.
  • Discover the true China you’ve never known.

Date & Time: Feb 11, 2017 at 1:30pm
Location: Morris County Library
Sponsor: SYPI, a nonprofit organization with a mission to revive the authentic Chinese culture.
