Performances and activities throughout the event include: 

  • Chinese folk dance by Inner-Action Dance, a performing art company that started in Beijing in 2008 and has been training dancers in Michigan since 2009. 
  • Movement and Sound Improvisation Ensemble from the UM School of Music exploring mindfulness in movement and sound, using the Tao Te Ching of Lao Tsu as an inspiration and a resource.  
  • Seoul Juice, a KSA-affiliated Korean American singing and instrumental cover group.
  • Yut Nori, a traditional Korean board game that people play on New Year's Day will also be available.
