2012 Minneapolis Institute of Arts Outreach
Minneapolis Institute of Ars Celebrates Dragons
Minneapolis Institute of Arts Target Family Day’s Feb. 11, 2012 celebration “Dragons”, featured CAAM Chinese Dance Theater and two dragon performances! Held in conjunction with the MIA’s Chinese New Year celebration, CAAM CDT performed three times to a packed Pillsbury Auditorium.
MIA’s celebration not only showcased its rich Chinese art collection but exposed attendees to Chinese culture and art through arts and crafts, a family friendly dragon hunt but of course CAAM CDT’s artistry! In addition to dragon dances performed by both children and adults, CDT dancers performance featured a peppy Fan Dance, a graceful Peacock Dance, a romantic Mongolian dance, and lively dance about Paper Cutting Girls. A good time was had by all!
