Acrobats perform for Carver Scholars
The Fabulous Chinese Acrobats recently performed for students in the after-school Scholars Program at Carver Elementary School.
The performance included contortions, plate spinning, foot juggling, Chinese yo-yo and group acrobatics.
An interpreter provided facts about Chinese culture and customs.
The Scholars Program is funded by a grant through the N.C. Department of Public Instruction and the 21st Century Community Learning Centers. Patrick Adams serves as director of the program.
Students attend the program Monday through Thursday throughout the school year. They receive additional help from their teachers and experience various social events, field trips and craft projects.
