Acrobat Dazzles!

At both the lower and middle-school assemblies last week, acrobat Li Liu performed an astonishing set of routines. "She seems as comfortable on her head as standing up," one lower schooler rightly observed. Between pieces, Li taught students Chinese phrases, talked about Chinese culture, and spoke about how her acrobat father sparked her interest early on. "At age six, he taught me to do handstands and to juggle. I went to circus school in Beijing and practiced at least eight hours a day."
