This weekend we’ll be celebrating National Dance Day and I’ll be hosting a local event in Stamford.
I’m still scurrying to master the choreography, as it comes on the heels of my return from China. I’ve been to get on stick to blog about my experiences there, but am still processing, catching up and trying to wake up!
Then it occurred to me that there is a strong tie between some of the work I did on the trip and this weekend’s National Dance Day Event.
I was fortunate enough to participate in the Yale Alumni Service Corp trip this month where I taught in Xiuning County, which is in the Anhui province. Xiuning (pronounced “Shu-ning”) comprises 9 towns and has a population of 274,000. It’s located about 5 hours by bus west of Shanghai.
