On Sep­tem­ber 13, led by Prof Holly Wang, the Con­fu­cius Insti­tute Per­form­ing Art Troupe (CIPAT) per­formed at West­min­ster, a local nurs­ing home, to cel­e­brate the National Assisted Liv­ing Week. In order to pro­vide local seniors a taste of Chi­nese cul­ture, CIPAT brought Chi­nese folk dances to the seniors. The show includes four group dances, three minor­ity solos, and one Gu Zheng music piece. Senior audi­ences enjoyed the beau­ti­ful Chi­nese dances and had a chance to chat with the dancers after the show. Accord­ing to Dr. Wei Hong, although Con­fu­cius Insti­tute has been to West­min­ster Vil­lage twice (The first time was teach­ing Chi­nese cal­lig­ra­phy, and the sec­ond time is a talk on Chi­nese senior life), this is the first time that the dance troupe per­formed. CIP con­tin­ues to serve the diver­si­fied and all lev­els of com­mu­nity cit­i­zens with the splen­did Chi­nese cul­tures.
