Lunar New Year – Tai Chi performance

We welcome the Year of the Rat at the start of the Lunar New Year on 25 January 2020. The Year of the Rat signifies a year of new beginnings and renewals. That is the year for everyone to show commitment and determination in their goals and aspirations.

City of Whitehorse - Lunar New Year Festival

To celebrate the start of the Lunar New Year, we will be participating in a group performance of Beijing 24 Tai Chi routine. The Wushu, Tai Chi and Qigong Association (WTQA) is inviting instructors and students from all Tai Chi schools to join forces to perform this routine as part of City of Whitehorse's Lunar New Year celebrations in Box Hill, one of the biggest in Melbourne.

WTQA is hoping to form one of the largest performances of Tai Chi in the Southern Hemisphere. Everyone is invited to join. So, brush up on the Beijing 24 Tai Chi routine at our summer park sessions and a special park session run by Senior Master Chin Min Lian.

We encourage our students and instructors to wear their college clothing, preferably the latest styles of red and black combinations. If you don't own any of the latest clothing, then please wear any of our black or white top variations.
