Our family is a member of Central Ohio Families with Children from China so we can expose our girls to their Asian culture. My wife signed our older two children up for their Kids’ Chinese Arts Program so that they can learn Chinese dance.
So I take them to the first class today. While the young Chinese instructor doesn’t have the 15 or so five-year-olds under complete control, she’s doing a better job than I do with my own three girls. She plugs in her laptop and the music starts. She proceeds to teach them not traditional Chinese dance, but American jazzercise.
While it did not expose them to the culture I was hoping. It did tire them out a little.
