Enrichment program: Qi experience dance performance by Lorelei Chang

The movements of Qi between heaven and earth have created thousand things in life. The sun, moon and star, heaven, earth and humanity. The Yin of the earth and Yang of the heaven are constantly interacting, giving and receiving, but never separating from each other. Lorelei expresses this very idea with her beautiful Qi dance performance.
