Spending Chinese New Year with Chinese and local communities in Portugal2018-02-04


The Pui Ching Dance Team performed in the Happy Spring Festival Gala in Portugal upon invitation by the Chinese Embassy in Portugal and brought traditional Chinese festivities to the local residents and tourists.


This was the second time the Pui Ching Dance Team was invited by the Embassy to go on a 16-day dance tour in Portugal. 


Principal Dr. Kou Kam Fai expressed excitement at the second invitation received by the Pui Ching Dance Team, the only team in Macao invited to perform at this level in Portugal.  The student artists had the opportunity to dance with various professional artists from Mainland China, visit three cities in Portugal, and perform in the local national theatre. 


During their time in Portugal, the student dancers also visited the Chinese Embassy in Portugal, the Macao Economic and Trade Affairs Office in Lisbon, the Oriental Concepts and Chinese Culture Association of Portugal, and Pui Ching’s sister school Escola Secundaria D. Pedro V., among various local attractions.  The trip was not only a chance for the students to showcase their talent, but also a tour of history and culture.  The exchange program is believed to foster talents for future Sino-Portugal economic development.
