Music, dance, art celebrates culture in Aldergrove for 2nd year

Various events at Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre hosted by Langley Arts Council

Langley Arts Council will be presenting a wide range of performers at the second annual “Celebration of Culture” event throughout March at the Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre.

Each Saturday in March will feature a variety of cultural performances.

The events aim to celebrate diversity through hands-on cultural programming, said fundraising coordinator Deepika Pandian.

“It will provide space for education, connection, and the celebration of our cultural differences through music, dance, performance, workshops, and more,” she added.

Saturday, March 2, kicks off the month-long celebration with a free traditional Chinese dance performance by students from Lorita Leung Dance Academy from noon to 1 p.m.

Afterwards, a workshop to make corn husk dolls is being held from 1:30 to 2:30, or 3 to 4 p.m., for $5 per person.

The following Saturday, March 9, will feature the popular Wild Moccasin Dancers from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. for free.

In the afternoon, an Indian Kuthu dance workshop will be held for free until 1 p.m.

There will also be a free swing-dance workshop from 1 to 2:30 p.m. by the Rock Step Swing Dance Society.

On March 16th, the day will start with a free presentation by Ted Lightfoot about saving wetland and salmon habitats from 11 a.m. to noon.
