It is nice to see the community outreach that this organization does. To have this type of cultural gem in the Mid-Atlantic and the state Capitol is a gift that I hope everyone recognizes. I look forward to seeing CCAI grow bigger and better.

Chen Yu and Bill Hubler have done an outstanding job with my daughter in training her in the art and culture of Chinese folk dance as well as ballet. My daughter now has the skills and self confidence to perform at competitions and as well as at dance recitals in front of audiences that included several hundred people.

They have expanded to do performances and other shows to highlight the Chinese culture and increase public awareness of the history of this culture. It is more than just a learning studio for student. I would encourage all people to look at what they have to offer.

Chinese Cultural and Arts Institute provides many great cultural programs. Parents can send their children to classes to understand Chinese culture. Faculties and staff are professional, well-trained and very patient to kids. I like to watch their annual performance too. So happy we have this professional institute in the area.

I danced at CCAI for 9 years before i graduated and went to college and it was a life changing experience where i made some really good friends, had amazing experiences, and learned more about my cultural heritage. CCAI changed me for the better and helped me learn about my culture and gave me a greater appreciation for dancing.

CCAI is a wonderful and welcoming school for both children and adults to enrich their lives in Chinese Arts. My daughter has taken both dance and language and the school and the faculty and students are like a second family to us. I cannot say enough good things about this school. My daughter is so happy to see her friends each week and the dance instructor, Ms. Chen-Yu is really top notch. So glad we found this school!

My daughter whom was adopted from China has attended many different classes for over 10 years. She has progressed from beginner to advanced due to the leadership and talent of the instructors and the head of the organization. I would recommend this group to any person wishing to learn the asian culture.
