Guests, including Phoenix Vice Mayor Michael Johnson attending Camp Graduation


The purpose of the Taipei Chinese Culture Summer Camp is to educate, introduce, and promote understanding of culture and diversity. Students are able to have hands-on experience in numerous areas of traditional Chinese culture, including learning and practicing the skills of Chinese lion dance, Chinese classical and traditional scarf, fan, native, and drum dances; Chinese calligraphy and painting, Chinese paper folding, paper cutting, and paper arts; Chinese arts and crafts, and Chinese kung fu by local instructors. In addition to these wonderful Chinese cultural classes, students are able to learn special talents and skills from instructors from Taipei, Taiwan, who teach students the unique and extraordinary art of Chinese traditional dough arts and Chinese yo-yo techniques. 

Vice Mayor Michael Johnson and community leaders attended the formal graduation where each student receive a certificate, a trophy and a t-shirt.  Students showcased performances of breathtaking lion dance, skillful Chinese yo-yo tricks, powerful kung-fu punches and kicks, elegant fan, scarf and drum dances and proudly displayed works of Chinese calligraphy, traditional dough arts arts and crafts. The five-day Taipei Chinese Culture Summer Camp was a tremendous success and we look forward to many more years of participation and partnership!
