Folk dances and dizzying martial art demonstrations were featured Tuesday at the annual Chinese Lunar New Year Festival held at Rhodes Elementary School in Chino.
The colorful morning long event included fan dancers, ribbon dancers, Philippine folk dancers, Tae Kwan Do, and Chinese martial arts demonstrations. An energetic Chinese lion dance had students shrieking with delight.
Members of the Rhodes faculty and staff also modeled colorful Chinese fashions.
Members of the Shaolin Temple group twirled swords, sticks, ropes, and large fans at great speed as they performed martial arts moves around the school’s outdoor stage.
