Chinese Women Business Association Li Wah Restaurant in Asia Plaza March 14, 2010
In celebration of International Woman's Month, the Chinese Women Business Association gathered at Li Wah Restaurant at Asia Plaza on Sunday March 14, 2010.
In addition to a wonderful meal, the guests were treated to entertainment by The Wind and Sand Dance Company who performed Middle Eastern belly dances choreographed by Cassandra Al Warda.
A particular favorite of the group was a cane dance.
Jane Wang entertained with her singing. There was a spectacular Red Dress Dance that was also very well received.
Yin Tang wore many hats for the evening.
Mistress of Ceremonies Yin Tang
In addition to being the Mistress of Ceremonies, Tang, who is a dance instructor, danced with a group who performed her original Paper Cut Dance.
Paper Cut Dance group
Based on the Chinese art of cutting papers into beautiful designs this dance, a Northern Han dance was beautiful and creative. Adding to the whimsy, or as Yin Tang calls it "mischievousness" was the face masks the girls wore on the backs of their heads.
Joanna Tang brought a group of young women whom she had taught to play the Hulusi, or Chinese flute. It is an interesting instrument with three bamboo pipes which pass through a gourd to produce sound and finger holes create notes and melodies. The group did an excellent job.
