Children's After School and Saturday Programs

We offer free After-School and Saturday programs to DC kids aged 6-18 in kung fu, lion and dragon dance, and African drumming in addition to developing leadership and teamwork skills.

Young lion dances warm up before performance without lion costume.

A Safe Place to Learn and Grow

We provide free programs to DC schoolchildren, made possible through generous funding from DC city funds and Learn24. Children aged 6-18 are introduced to Kung Fu, Chinese Lion Dance, Chinese Thunder Drumming, and African Djembe Drumming, fostering teamwork and cultural appreciation through participation in gala events and educational excursions to historical landmarks and museums during the summer months.

Our programs for children are free for DC residents aged 6-18 years old. We only ask for a $50 registration fee.
