Students participate in an annual student recital in June and semester end showcases throughout the year. There are also many opportunities for students to perform at our public events throughout the year.
NYCCC had its virtual Lunar New Year Celebration show on February 14th with 8 performances of Chinese ethnic dances, lion dance, kung fu, Chinese music and singing. Senator Chuck Schumer, Council Member Margaret Chin and Consul General Huang Ping joined our show to share their new year's greetings with our audience. After the performances, we had fun workshops for participants to learn Chinese dance, kung fu and Mandarin language. The show and workshops were all free and open to the public.
