Last Friday we had a talent show at Nanjing University’s Xianling Campus to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Hopkins-Nanjing Center. In addition to the academic component, I love that at the center students share their non-academic talents as well, which makes the center a fun place to be. This talent show was a perfect place to highlight everyone’s gifts.

My group was one of the first up. We performed a global dance medley to Christmas music designed by Andrew and Adrienne, our ‘resident dance instructors’! It was really fun learning the dance. Who knew you could rumba to Last Christmas? We also had a foxtrot, a little bit of swing and some group dances.
There were other acts Chinese and American students created together and performed from comedy, to singing, to dancing. Take a look at some of the other acts below!
School work will take a lot of work so this was a nice reprieve. I’m going to keep this post short because we’re actually coming up to finals soon. Keep an eye out though because I’ll have some posts coming up on my recent research trip to the countryside and our Christmas festivities!
