August 18th, 2018 QiXi “Chinese Valentine’s Day” Celebration Program:

  1. Red Ribbon Dance

In Chinese culture when a bride and a groom are to be wed, they’re tied together by a long length of red ribbon. The color red symbolizes happiness and good fortune. We felt it appropriate to start off an event celebrating love with the Red Ribbon Dance.

  1. Kang Ding Love Song

This song was written by man for his lover who was from the town of Kan Ding. In it he professes his love as well as sings about love for the world.

  1. Peacock 

In some Eastern cultures, it is believed that a peacock’s body does not decay after death. Hence it has been attributed to immortality. The magnificent colors of the tail is said to symbolize varying hues of love. As a result, peacock feathers have become a popular decoration at weddings to symbolize undying, multi-faceted love.

Yin Tang Dance has been in Cleveland since 1999. Originally a dance instructor at the CCCCA, Yin Tang separated to form the performance focused company in 2013. The dancers perform styles centered around historical songs, legends and different regions of China. Each region holds deep cultural roots and are unique in their own way. Yin Tang Dance does not only bring a colorful show, but a cultural experience as well.

In her high school and early college days, she traveled to China over the summers and continued dancing with instructors from professional schools in Chongqing. Yin has also trained in classical and romantic ballet to further her technique.

  1. Hello, My name is Normaris Mendoza and I am the ESL Tutor at St. Wendelin Catholic School in Fostoria, Ohio. Currently I have fifteen international students from China who have chosen to study at our school. I believe that in order to be overall successful it is important to not only learn the American culture and language, but for the Chinese students to give our American students a look into their culture. Therefore I am trying to plan a Chinese New Year event at St. Wendelin School in Febuary. With that said is there a possibility of having some of your students perform at the school in honor of the Chinese New Year festivities? Please feel free to either email me at normaris.mendoza@stwendelin.org or I can be reach at (419) 435-8144. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

  2. Espero ustedes me envíen mayor información sobre sus danzas, sus leyendas, sus historias;es reconfortante poder aprender más de una cultura milenaria y hacerlas conocer a los jóvenes. Dónde poder adquir sus músicas. Gracias por su atención.
