The dancers will stay with local families to learn American culture and have a great time in our SoCal sunshine!  The dancers are all students at the Xiao Bai Fan Art School, where they learn dance, music, painting, etc.

Accompanied by a group of parents and teachers, the dancers will be treated to a “Welcome” Beach Bonfire—a classic American treat—complete with hot dogs and s’mores, prior to meeting their new American families.  Next morning, they’ll begin their daily ballet classes, followed by a recital on campus at California State University, Long Beach.

Finally, on Aug. 5, our LBQA will treat the dancers, parents, homestay families, and our local friends to a “Farewell Dinner” at Forbidden City Restaurant, 5:30 – 7:30 pm.

Join our “Farewell Dinner” and meet these charming dancers, their teachers and families!!  Earlybird Ticket prices are $25 per adult and $10 per child under 15.
