When a catastrophic earthquake hit China’s Sichuan Province last month, Min Christ wondered how much she could help halfway around the world.

Because her daughter, Shelby, performs with the Henga Dance Academy, a professional Chinese dance school, Christ decided to hold a dance show to raise money for Sichuan residents.

“Originally we thought just our family wanted to do something, but then we talked to my daughter’s dance teacher, and he said, ‘Yeah, we want to help,’ ” Christ said. “Then more families and more friends wanted to help https://vaigeneric.com/generic-viagra/.”

More and more people became involved until the Christs found themselves with an 18-performance program that includes Zhenglun Li, winner of China’s National Cello Competition in 1988; Claire Yu Qi, a singer who won the famous GuZheng Chinese Department of Culture competition in 1995; the Seattle Chinese Opera; and the Microsoft Chime Band. Other singers, dancers, musicians and martial artists will also perform.
