I spent the afternoon at the Dragon Boat Festival and was entertained by performers from the Ocean Rain Chinese Arts Academy (above). They provided a selection of colorful dances from various regions of China. Pictured above is the Director of the Academy performing the Opera Dance. While much of the entertainment at the Dragon Boat Festival relates to Chinese culture, other cultures are also featured. Below is one of the dancers from the AIEWA School of Cultural Dances that specializes in ethnic dances from the Middle East and North Africa. Beauty in motion. My thanks to all members of both troupes for their fascinating performances.
