It’s Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month!

If that doesn’t just roll off your tongue…

We decided to celebrate by hosting a dragon dancing workshop in the park! To make this event happen, we partnered with the Drum Rollers who charmed our ears with their musical magic. They also taught the workshop. Despite the sweltering heat, which decided to plague us before summer, over 30 people braved the heat to celebrate and dance with us!

Participants learned some of the basics of how to Dragon Dance and were given the opportunity to participate in a future local event. It was like playing “follow the leader” for all ages! A favorite was “Row the boat” where participants actually made a boat and pretended to row it. Fun was had by all.

Enjoy the slideshow below for some snippets from the day. Community Faces KC also came by and photographed the event, so can see those pictures here.
