NOTE VENUE CHANGE!! Traditions of Chinese Acrobatics

July 18, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Location: Lapham Community Center

**Due to ongoing repair work on our lower level following flooding, this performance had to be moved off-site. Many thanks to Lapham Community Center for offering their space!!! **

Join amazing acrobat Li Liu as she performs feats of hand balancing, plate spinning, ribbon dancing, diabols, foot juggling & Chinese Kung Fu fan manipulation!  A few volunteers will get to join Li on stage to create an impromptu ribbon dance and try their hands at plate spinning.

Educational connections are made with the Chinese language & culture.  Li explains some of the rituals of Chinese New Year, teaches the audience some basic Chinese phrases & encourages them to think about what it might be like to grow up in a different time & place.

*DIRECTIONS TO LAPHAM: From Lapham Road enter into Waveny Park between the stone pillars, take first left and follow to the end (you will pass the Waveny Swimming pool on the left). The Lapham Center is a quaint, turn of the century house and is located between the old Waveny Mansion and the New Canaan High School. Parking is available on-site.
