Count down to the start of the Year of the Snake with snake handlers, lion dancers, and martial arts demos celebrating Chinese New Year. Be charmed by live snakes and their handlers throughout the building, and see how many of the Academy’s 18 snake species you can find on display. Learn how to lion dance during a demonstration and lion dancing workshop, hear about northern martial arts styles from members of the Jing Mo Athletic Association. CHSA will be there with a teaser preview of its Hats Off! exhibit opening February 8, and Lunar New Year craft activities.
Then enjoy a series of Chinese New Year performances featuring martial arts, lion dancers, music and more. Plus, who doesn’t love a giant version of the classic video game Snake?
