GLCA had its first rehearsal of the gala:

The 2015 Greater Lansing Chinese New Year Celebration Gala will be held on Feb. 21 at the Meridian Mall, in order to greet the arrival of annual Spring Festival, which is the most important festival in Chinese culture. The Greater Lansing Chinese Association (GLCA) begins the preparation of the Chinese New Year Event.

On Feb. 8, GLCA had its first rehearsal of the gala. Except hosts, fashion show models, taiji players, Extreme Hiphop Crew dancers, and Tea Ceremony Club performers were present. Even if this was only a rehearsal, they brought a wonderful visual festival.

Julie Jiang, the chair of the GLCA, said that it was the third time they held a gala in Meridian mall.

“Lansing is the capital of Michigan, so I want to combine surrounding cities work together to hold the gala, celebrating our Chinese New Year. Last year, we worked with Ann Arbor, and this year, we work with Detroit. ” Julie said, “and I also think it is a great way to spread Chinese culture and influence Americans. I won’t change the forms and processes of the Chinese New Year Celebration, because I want people to get used to it and know it is what Chinese New Year looks like, so that they would not be confused.”

Qing Zhang, a Michigan State University student majored in Journalism, was the model of fashion show. This was the second time for her to attend Greater Lansing Chinese New Year Celebration Gala. When talked about why she wanted to attend this activity, she said it was coincidence.

“Last year when I dress rehearsal for MSU Spring Festival gala, Julie selected some girls to do the Qipao show, I was one of them. I thought it was really interesting, and decided to attend again.” Qing Zhang said.

She chose a song called Blue and White Porcelain as the background music was because this song was very Chinese style and retro, and it might drive foreigners want to know more about China.

This Qipao show, will performance at the gala, vividly displayed Chinese classical women’s elegance, affectionate and charm. Furthermore, it also conveyed the beauty of Chinese traditional dress.

Not like the fashion show, Extreme Hiphop Crew dancers display their glamour in another way. The girls are dynamic and ardent. People who are interested in Hip-hop will enjoy this dance.

In order to show the best side at the Greater Lansing Chinese New Year Celebration Gala, Extreme Hiphop Crew members try their best.

“It is pretty tired. We practice every day and don’t have time to have a meal. Not until 11, we won’t go home. ” Vincy, a member of Extreme Hiphop Crew, said. “I hope audiences will like our performance.”

It is kind of an evidence that American culture also impacts Chinese students. Chinese travel across the ocean to study here and live there. As time goes by, both cultures have already combined while we are not noticing. And the Greater Lansing Chinese New Year Celebration Gala is the product of two combined cultures.
