Our Performance at Long Island Chinese American Night (7/15)

On Saturday July 15, residents on Long Island celebrated Chinese American Night. This event was held during the evening, in Eisenhower Park’s Lakeside Theater. Chinese American Night is hosted annually, and always has an audience of hundreds. The event included a series of performances that celebrate Chinese culture, including lion dancing, face changing, acrobatics, yoyo, traditional instrument orchestras, and several other Chinese arts. 

At that event, the Tai Chi Youth Group performed twice. Our athletes showcased their skills in kung fu and tai chi–through a variety of weapons and routines, such as spear, double straight sword, and tai chi fan. Performers include Master Sitan Chen, the ”Prince of Tai Chi” in China, and Alan Huang, a 17 year-old athlete qualified for the 2023 World Wushu Championships. This year’s event was a major success, as both performers and audience members alike look forward to next year’s Chinese American Night!
