Arts For The Schools
Last week 1,293 students attended performances with the wondrous acrobats that traveled from the People's Republic of China to perform in Tahoe. Students were awed by the discipline, art and traditional Chinese costumes. We are very grateful to North Tahoe High School for allowing us to host the performances at their theater.
