NYCCC's 19th Annual Lunar New Year Performance

POST #    723

The Monkey King and his monkey cohorts in "Monkey King Swings into Spring."

More monkey action.

The finale, "Reflections on a New Year," with drums and dancers.

More from the finale. Red ribbon dancers and more drummers.

As if I haven't done enough Chinese New Year things this week, I did one more after dim sum and the parade in Chinatown. I promise, this will be the last you hear about Chinese New Year until 2005/4703. So after Chinatown, I made my way to NYU's Skirball Center for New York Chinese Cultural Center's (NYCCC) 19th Annual Lunar New Year Festival of Chinese Dance, Music & Peking Opera.

This was at least the 5th NYCCC performance that I have attended or helped in. My childhood best friend's mother is on the executive board, so I would often be roped into helping out at the event. She billed it as a way to meet lots of pretty girls, which it was, but I guess they weren't interested in me. I mean, after seeing me in action, how can the ladies not be interested in me? Strange. Anyway, it was great to see all the performances at this year's NYCCC show. If you can make it to anything on their schedule, you should check it out.

NYCCC is a community based organization that teaches traditional Chinese performing arts to the Asian-American community. They have performances, workshops, lectures, and classes that they teach to people throughout the United States.
