Traditions of Chinese Acrobatics at Irwin Park

June 30, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Location: Irwin Park

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. In the case of inclement weather the rain date is July 1st at Irwin Park.
