The Year of the Monkey
The Chinese Culture Center is welcoming the Year of the Monkey in a grand fashion this Sunday, Feb. 7. The traditional dragon dance will be performed in all of its splendor, and demonstrators will also be on hand to illustrate the nuance of Tai Chi Chuan, “the exercise of immortality,” and the more aggressive Xing Yi Chuan style of Chinese martial arts. All of this will be played out to the soundtrack of traditional drumming. The celebration lasts from 1-2:30pm at the Chinese Culture Center's home base. Celebrate along with the billions of people around the world welcoming a new year at this totally free event. (Maggie Grimason)
