More than 1,000 CCAI families and friends gathered at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood on Saturday night to celebrate with CCAI’s Joyous Chinese Cultural Center (JCCC) and usher in the Chinese New Year of the Rooster!  As always, the vibrant and talented JCCC dancers dazzled with their costumes and performances, from Mongolian and Tibetan folk dances to traditional Chinese lantern and long sleeve dances.  As a special treat, Wang Junru, a former Cirque de Soleil performer and winner of China’s Got Talent, astounded the crowd with her extraordinary acrobatic and contortionist skills.  CCAI was further honored to welcome our distinguished guest Mr. Hong Lei, Consul General from the Chicago Consulate, who gave a heartfelt speech praising the friendship of our two great nations.

If you missed the show, check out these amazing photos and video – Joshua Zhong, CCAI’s president and co-founder, made a special entrance as this year’s “Rooster,” and you can’t un-see this chicken dance!!

CCAI and JCCC extend our heartfelt thanks to all our wonderful performers, staff, volunteers, and families who made this year’s Chinese New Year celebration so special.  Your love and dedication is unmatched!

新年快乐,Happy New Year!!!
