The National Center for Traditional Arts in Yilan County will be commencing a series of events to usher in the Lunar New Year — the Year of the Dragon. They have already started teaching people how to make commemorative red envelopes with block print dragons on them as well as how to do paper cutting, and on the first day of the Lunar New Year until the seventh day the center has invited the National Taiwan College of Performing Arts Acrobatic Troupe and other troupes to put on some outstanding performances. Admission is free for Yilan County residents if they show their ID cards on the first and second days of the Lunar New Year.

In welcoming the Year of the Dragon, there will be acrobatic performances, Taiwanese gezai opera, budaixi puppet theater, beiguan music, paper cutting, a block print exhibit for the Year of the Dragon, and the printing of red envelopes for the Year of the Dragon. They have already started teaching classes on how to print red envelopes and do paper cutting, marking the beginning of this series of events.

The center will be upping the ante from Jan. 23 until Jan. 29, with the National Taiwan College of Performing Arts’ Acrobatics Troupe’s acrobatics for the Year of the Dragon, the Citizens Grand Opera Class Troupe’s Lunar New Year dragon and phoenix dances, and the Taipei Puppet Theater’s comedy for the new spring.

People can take part in a sweepstake raffle this month if they spend at least NT$101 at the center, and the lucky few will find out who they are at 4pm on Jan. 31. Among the outstanding prizes are tablet PCs and vouchers to stay at five-star hotels free of charge.
