Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
To some, Nashville might seem like the last place you would go to see an authentic Chinese Lion Dance or Group Drumming performance. With their newly developed website the Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashville can now let even more people know that is not the case. As part of their mission to build awareness of Chinese culture, visual & performing arts, the non-profit organization worked with web development firm Horton Group to build its new website. On their new internet home visitors can find specific information about live performances, artistic exhibits and other programs. In addition, those who would like to support CAAN are able to do so by registering online for a membership or offering donations.
“Nashville has always had a strong appreciation for the arts,” said Lin. “The website is a great way to show the public a side of Chinese culture many might not have exposure to. With support, we will be able to bring in more performers and artists from around the nation and the world.”
Visitors will find a wealth of information on the new website covering the different classes and events the Chinese Arts Alliance is bringing to the Nashville community. With a simple design visitors can easily find details on a variety activities offered, ranging from seminars, classroom teaching and educational workshops to art exhibits and public programs. Some of the most popular programs include: Chinese dance for kids, Student Lion Dance Team Classes and Chinese Summer Blast - named Best Bilingual Children Summer Activity by the Nashville Scene.
The website also features a large collection of images and videos that provide an online glimpse of traditional and folk Chinese dance presentations. Links to the CAAN Facebook page and YouTube channel have also been added to in an effort to reach a wider audience.
“Our mission is part promotion and part education,” stated director Jen-Jen Lin. “Through our classes and events we are hoping to promote the awareness, understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of the Chinese visual arts and performing arts while at the same time providing an educational experience.”
The Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashville was founded December 2002 and continues to function through the support of members, volunteers, and donations. Visitors can donate via the website or provide additional support by attending their various events held throughout the year.
