The Olympics are coming to Beijing in 2008. As a prelude to this, the Chinese Ministry of Culture has begun a cultural exchange program and has put several Chinese agencies to task to seek out foreign performing groups and artist to share their art with the people of China during the time leading up to the Olympics. Imagine our shock when we received an invitation to represent the United States in China this summer. Imagine our additional shock when we saw that the original invitation was for three full months!!

Sadly, we had to decline. Our dancers couldn't be away from school and their families for this amount of time. But, after a considerable amount of negotiations, we were finally offered a five week long tour, covering China from top to bottom. On June 29th, we boarded a plane to Beijing, China!

It was a life changing experience for all of us. Read about the adventure here, the good and the bad:

What a great trip! And what an excellent recounting of it. I stayed up way too late tonight, reading it. I'm looking forward to reading about your tours in Austria, Singapore and Bulgaria.
