To enrich their social life and share their common interest, moms of the Hope Chinese School students formed the Hope Chinese School Mom Dancing Group in the spring of 2000 under the leadership of Ms. Xiao-qin Zheng, a well-known Chinese dance choreographer and instructor in the Washington DC metropolitan area.

Starting with sixteen members for their first performance, the Group has expanded to more than 100 members today, has been actively involved in community events to promote Chinese heritage and culture.

“What’s unique about this group is that not only we are full time moms but also most of us are full time professionals. It’s the common interests that bring us together,” said Member Dana Wang. The group practices every Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Wednesday. The group has learned many Chinese dances, including Tibetan Dance, Red Ribbon, Good Life, Yellow Mountain, and The Same Song.
