The Lunar New Year came to campus with banging drums, dancing dragons and martial arts demonstrations. On Feb. 12, a group of entertainers from Portland celebrated the Chinese New Year with students eating lunch at Central Oregon Community College.
Ryan Dang, one of the demonstrators, joined the group just four weeks before the performance.
“I just like performing in front of people,” said Dang. “Honestly, part of the fun is just messing with people. You can get away with a lot when you’re under the skin.”
The performers definitely “messed with” many of the onlookers, getting very close to audience members and even putting the dragon’s mouths over them.
