the dragon dance

A couple weeks ago, we celebrated the Year of the Dragon with a dragon-themed family day at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

Dragon Dance performed by young members of CAAM Chinese Dance Theater

We tried our hand at Chinese calligraphy, went eye-to-eye with some live reptiles, and reveled in the Dragon Dances performed by CAAM Chinese Dance Theater. The dances kindled some long-forgotten glow; everywhere, vibrant red patterns swayed and twirled, enveloping us in all the fiery heat of a dragon’s breath. Just the thing to warm our spirits in the thin, gray light of February.
