On April 14th, local time, Wesleyan College Confucius Institute in America celebrated its fifth annual award party of the National Fashion Festival in a row, forging profound friendship with the organizer, the Macon National Promotion Committee.

It’s known that the 2018 Award Party of National Fashion is a celebration for the 20th anniversary of the festival. As an influential cultural event in Macon, the Award Party of National Fashion aims to display the cultural traits of different races and nations to enhance understanding and friendships among all nations.

At the evening party, Wang Fengxia, new Chinese Director of the Wesleyan College Confucius Institute led a group of 20 people consisting of members of the dancing team, student performers and other staff to put on performances of rich Chinese characteristics for the National Fashion Festival. Nearby Churches, choruses from senior high schools and local string bands also brought to the audience wonderful shows.

The excellent performances brought by the Wesleyan College Confucius Institute won warm applause from the audience. Against the light and shadow, pretty ladies staged “Pink Powder” with their flying long sleeves, sometimes looking around bashfully and sometimes dancing passionately. The audience held their breath to the sound of spring rain revealed in the guzheng solo of “Stories of Verdancy”. While in the dance of “Vernal Sceneries”, ladies in green costumes held pink oil-paper umbrellas and whirled about sprightly, taking on such a gorgeous picture that brought the whole show to a successful close.
