The Gund Kwok Asian Women’s Lion & Dragon Dance Troupe is hosting a FREE trial class for Asian women in the Greater Boston area.
Where have I seen your troupe before?
Many places! Here’s a short list: Chinatown Lunar New Year Celebration, Quincy Lunar New Year Celebration, BU’s Origins Culture Show, and on TV and in movies: The Departed!
What is Gund Kwok?
Gund Kwok, which means heroine in Chinese, symbolizes women’s power and strength. We are a team of dynamic Asian American women of all ages, professional backgrounds, and personalities! Check out the unique GK experience on NPR!
What is Dragon Dance?
The dragon dance is a highlight of Chinese New Year and other major celebrations held worldwide in Chinatowns around the world. Check out our moves!
What is a trial class?
A trial class is open to all Asian American women of all ages and is an opportunity to try Dragon Dance. You will be given an introduction of Dragon Dance, followed by a warm up, and then off to get under the dragon!
Surfing around Netflix a few weeks back, I checked out a DC Cupcakes episode with lion dance in an episode title. Seriously?
So, of course, I had to check it out. It was pretty cool how it was constructed — they even added a fireworks type mechanism so that confetti would explode out of the mouth. Umm…that part was a little odd.
The sweet treat was commissioned for an Asian Pacific Heritage event.
Kudos to the — perhaps, very first? — lion dance cupcake!
