Chinese Dragon

Saturday, February 28, 2015
10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
Presented by: John and Dorothy Tecklenburg

Join us to learn how to perform an authentic Dragon Dance! The Dragon Dance is performed at Chinese New Year (which will occur on Thursday, February 19, 2015) to drive off the monster Nain. No experience is necessary to participate in the workshop and no level of physical fitness is required. Participants will learn how to be a dragon dancer and also a musician (using drums, gongs and cymbals). Costumes will also be provided.

John and Dorothy Tecklenburg spent 5 years in China and returned with a Chinese dragon as a memento of their time in China. The dragon will be on display in the library's lobby during the month of February.
