Our Partners and host: The Dallas Chinese Community Center:
Tucked on a plaza lined with statues of past emperors, the Dallas Chinese Community Center was established a little over 30 years ago, with the mission to promote Chinese culture and to foster diversity through educational, cultural and recreational programs and activities that enrich the lives of immigrants and broad American society. Today the center continues to bring lively programs such as language classes, Chinese Painting and Chinese Calligraphy, various types of dances, martial arts, computer classes, and diverse workshops.
