The Carnegie Library in Oakland will host the OCA Youth Lion & Yoyo Team on January 24 as part of its World Kaleidoscope series. From the library's webpage:
The Pittsburgh chapter [of the OCA] focuses on cultural outreach and education for Pittsburgh and the surrounding communities by promoting and sharing Chinese culture and heritage through our dedicated program, the OCA Youth Performance Ensemble. This ensemble is a group of enthusiastic teens, from 13 to 18 years of age, who are OCA Youth members interested in learning Chinese dances and other Chinese folk arts. The OCA Youth Performance Ensemble is led by OCA Vice President of Cultural Affairs, Chiapih Shaw. The OCA Youth Lion & Yoyo Team, led by Allen Peng, OCA Vice President of Education, and teaching assistants Steven Lo, David Tsui, and Alex Peng, is comprised of members of the OCA Youth Performance Ensemble who will present traditional lion dancing while also demonstrating and incorporating the Chinese yo-yo into their appearance as part of the World Kaleidoscope series!
The event runs from 2:00 to 3:00 pm in the first floor's Quiet Reading Room. It's free and open to the public.
