除夕之夜陪你过大年 KCCAA除夕春晚团队介绍-2

回顾堪城现代中文学校与KCCAA共庆新春

春节是中华民族乃至整个汉字文化圈最重要、也是最隆重的传统节日,因为它承载着丰富、鲜明的中华文化内涵。每年,堪城中美联合会(KCCAA)都会以大型春晚的形式来庆祝这一节日。

在绚丽多彩的舞台上,活跃着一支将古典与现代元素融合在一起的舞蹈队,它就是堪城现代中文学校舞蹈队。这支舞蹈队于2016年正式成立,刚成立的一年多就与KCCAA合作登上了2017年春晚的大舞台,向观众奉上了舞蹈佳作——《说唱脸谱》,带领观众走进了神奇而瑰丽的国粹京剧艺术世界,在KCCAA的春晚上留下了浓墨重彩的一笔。

堪城现代中文学校能与KCCAA合作,是对中华文化精神与传统最生动的展示与传播,高度契合了本校“传承与弘扬中华文化”的办学宗旨;不仅如此,参与春晚活动能让中文学校的孩子们,更全面地感受到本族裔的力量和声势、看到华人社区的凝聚力与影响力,进而提升孩子们的自身文化自豪感和族裔文化认同感;同时,中文学校也期望每年以参与春晚演出的形式,向堪城华人社区传达中文学校对文化传承的坚持,表达对社区诚挚美好的新春祝福!

堪城现代中文学校通常是在每年的春季学期一结束就开始着手筹划第二年的春晚节目。他们特别注重节目的中华文化内涵,在保证节目艺术水准的同时,总是努力将中华传统美德、人文精神和气度神韵通过表演展现出来。例如,在2018年的1月27日,作为堪城当年的首场贺新春活动,堪城现代中文学校在舞蹈老师郑敏颐的带领下,完美演绎了一个感人的故事——《锄禾》,精彩演绎了著名唐诗《悯农》所表达的对劳动果实的珍惜和对辛苦劳作的尊重。她们用真诚朴实的表演、天真无邪的笑容和舞蹈传递的情感深深打动了在场观众,得到了观众们的普遍赞誉。

堪城现代中文学校舞蹈队成立几年来,也遇到过各种困难,主要的困难一是时间比较紧张,中文学校每学期十六周上课时间,每节课都有相应的教学安排,要在完成规定的教学任务同时,保证排练时间和节目质量,学校、老师和同学们都付出了很多努力,尤其是郑敏颐和魏嘉老师,为了保证节目质量,不仅在课外花很多时间编排准备节目,演出临近更是夜以继日地辛劳。此外是排练场地的困难,因为场地的限制,也为了保证每个年龄段的学生都得到相应的成长空间,学校特别在校外租借了专业的舞蹈教室为大孩子开班上课。当然还有每年为准备春晚节目都需要不少的资金支持,这也是学校和家长所必须面对的另一个困难,更别说每年从国内订服装,然后拜托朋友、家长从中国带服装道具回来的艰难不易了··· 不过,当他们克服了重重困难,以更成熟和完美的舞技亮相在KCCAA春晚舞台上的时候,总是觉得所有的努力都是值得的,如2019年在KCCAA春晚舞台上推出的《花木兰》更是超燃亮相,展现出中华一代巾帼英雄史诗。

今年春晚的序曲已经拉响,祝愿堪城现代中文学校再创精品,KCCAA春晚圆满成功!
