What we learned from last year's talent show is that we need to set up the Den as atheatre. This way the audience will have a better view to enjoy the show.Unfortunately there will only be chairs and no tables due to these changes.Teachers and students, you are more than welcome to stay at the Den or thestudent union cafeteria for lunch after getting your lunch bags.


This"Chinese Talent Show" is a friendly event, its main purpose is to encouragestudents to learn and enjoy Chinese culture. Every performer will get a medal, acertificate and a prize from UAA-CI!
