We’d like to thank our amazing volunteers for making this year’s Boston Chinatown Lunar New Year Celebration a success!
From holding flags to dropping lion heads & a dragon off to going to all the shops so that they’d be ready for us to steering the drum cart to making sure our supply cart was stocked to crowd control and to everything else in between — we THANK YOU!
The arctic temperatures did not cooperate with us last Sunday, but the celebration has been rescheduled for the upcoming Sunday on February 21, 2016 at 10AM!
Again, the event will kick off at 1oAM on Harrison Avenue in Boston Chinatown (near Kaze Shabu Shabu, Cha Time, Beard Papa’s, and Asian Garden Restaurant) with stage performances. Lion dancers will then go around with their troupes to all the shops and restaurants blessing them and bringing good fortune for the new year.
We hope you are having an extraordinary summer! We are excited to inform you that the Gund Kwok troupe, the only all-Asian female troupe, will be providing lion and dragon dance classes after Labor Day. Come learn a centuries-old tradition while getting your workout on with a wonderful group of diverse Asian women! The key details are listed below. Please feel free to share this with your Asian female friends and colleagues who may be interested.
What: Lion and Dragon dance classes When: Every Thursday, 6:30-9:00pm from 9/11 – 11/13 Duration: 10 weeks (8 classes devoted to lion, one class devoted to dragon, and the last class will be your “graduation” performance) Location: China Trade Center, 2 Boylston St. (go down stairs to the lower level) What to Bring: Workout clothes, sneakers, water Cost: $100
During the 10th week, you will “graduate” from the Gund Kwok trial program by performing a lion dance with your classmates for your friends and family!
If interested, please fill out the form below by end of day Fri., 9/5 as to whether or not you will be participating in our trial classes — please check off the box for “10-Week Lion Dance Trial Class”. We can’t wait to see you there!
