This week, there was a cultural exchange programme whereby Tibetan students visited the kids' school. The funds for their trip and all accompanying expenses were raised last year by the students here. The host students of these Tibetan friends will get to visit them at another time in the year too.
On Friday, their last day in Tianjin, there was a combined performance for the elementary school. On Wed, there was already a concert for the secondary section. Dh was involved too, as a parent volunteer. He played the violin.
I enjoyed the performances and felt that the Tibetan students are very good looking too. So it was eye candy indeed. And their songs, dances and music were all so invigorating.
Pictures are not good for describing performances, so here are some clips.
This is supposedly their native tribal dance, although Dh kept saying it is more Xinjiang than Tibetan. I don't know, I can't tell.
The Grade 2s in our school sang "It's a Small World". Very cute, as they harmonize.
At the end of the whole concert (other performances not included here), the whole student body was asked to dance together with the Tibet guests. Somewhat like a mass dance. Looked so fun, I wanted to join in.
ds1 was so hilarious! You have to view the clips. He certainly enjoyed all the dances! I seldom see him being so enthusiastic.
They were dancing for quite long, with a number of changes in the songs. Ds1 kept going strong, so I keep shooting using my digicam, but as it is primarily a digicam, the videos are not so clear and the timing is limited.
This is when they decided to move in circles.
ds1 was so keen, he joined the inner circle of dancers. Despite dancing in such a hilarious manner, the head of school still went up to him at the end of the dances and praised him for his great effort and enthusiasm! haha
