* CHINESE CLASSES
Jing Ying will be offering Chinese (Mandarin) language classes. We are looking at a short 6-week session in May/June to introduce students to the classes and then offering full semester classes starting in the Fall.
The current plan is to offer one adult-only class and one child-oriented class that can include adults (each class would have a different focus).
We will be holding two open houses to introduce you to the teacher, provide more information about the classes, and an opportunity to ask questions. The first open house on Monday, 4/16 will focus on the adult-only class (http://www.facebook.com/JingYingInstitute#!/events/213379565436015/) and the second open house on Thursday, 4/19, will focus on the child/family class (http://www.facebook.com/JingYingInstitute#!/events/371834159522788/). Both will be at 6:30pm and will last about one hour.
A Chinese snack and drink will be provided, so please let us know if you are attending either by signing up at Jing Ying or on the Jing Ying facebook page.
* WORLD TAI CHI DAY
World Tai Chi Day is on the last Friday in April. Therefore, the April belt test will be moved up one week and held on Saturday, April 21. We will once again be holding the WTCD event at the Annapolis Towne Centre at 10 am on April 28 in the grassy area between Brio and P.F. Chang's.
