Youth Leadership

In America, local festivals and events offer children the opportunity to learn about other cultures. During these occasions, they learn about language, art, foods, customs, dances, and most importantly, the history of the culture. Our group comprises students of various ages and backgrounds that have learned about traditional and modern dances of Vietnamese culture. The traditional dance represents how Vietnamese people in rural areas live in harmony and peace with one another. The song for the modern dance translates to “spring butterfly” and is often played during the Lunar New Year to celebrate the coming of the springtime.
