What do you get when 277 students from all over Asia descend upon the British School of Beijing (BSB)? The FOBISSEA Primary Performing Arts Carnival, of course! From Thursday, March 14, to Sunday, March 17, the school’s Shunyi campus hosted those 277 Year 5 and Year 6 students for an extravaganza of music, dance, and martial arts.
FOBISSEA, less pithily known as The Federation of British International Schools in South East Asia and East Asia, has many federation-wide events, and this year BSB hosted the annual Performing Arts Carnival, where students participated in master classes in chorus or their chosen instrument; Bollywood dancing; Chinese calligraphy; martial arts; Morris dancing, and more.
Visiting students weren’t limited to studying their artistic talents; they also took a trip to a village near the Great wall and saw the traditional Chinese dragon dance and martial arts performances. The epic weekend concluded with a showcase performance on Sunday, March 14. You can see more photos from the event on BSB’s website.
