Heroines and the Rooster

Welcoming in the year of the Rooster at the Peabody Essex Museum with the only all-woman, Lion and Dragon dance troupe in the US, Gund Kwok. Their performances never fail to fill the atrium at the museum, year after year. I am so appreciative of their performance and their work and how they add to the diversity of female role models for girls and women everywhere.

If you have two minutes, watch this video from their founder. Her dedication and passion are so inspiring to me. She spoke and performed today and had the audience eating from the palm of her hand…and we left knowing much more about Asian culture than when we came in.
