Lao Classical Dance
To celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month, The Center for Lao Studies Traditions, Language & Cultures program dance group will be performing at the Asian Branch Library. The performance will focus on traditional Lao music and dance, as a way to raise awareness about Lao culture. Lao classical dance, the playing of musical instruments, and knowledge of the Lao language are quickly disappearing as the older Lao generation, who largely retains this knowledge, are passing on. Center for Lao Studies Center is working with talented artists in Lao fine arts as well as cuisine, to train and educate younger generations so these art forms will continue long into the future. Please come and join us! This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Asian Library.
