Dances of Three Nations a huge success

On Saturday, June 25th the Chinese, Japanese and Korean communities in Portland, with generous support from the Port of Portland, NIKE and the Portland Art Museum, were pleased to present a “Dances of Three Nations”. The second annual event took place at 2:00 pm in the Kridel Grand Ballroom of the Portland Art Museum.
The event was free and open to the public. Over 400 people attended and there was a VIP reception held afterwards.
The idea for the event originated with officials from three Portland area offices: Jin Lan, President of Oregon-China Sister State Relations Council; Kijiro Uchiyama, Consul General of Japan in Portland; and Greg Caldwell, Honorary Consul for the Republic of Korea in Portland.
Three talented dances were Xuan Cheng (China), Diana Hinatsu (Japan), and Seung-Hee Ji (Korea). An active in the Oregon dance community.
