LOS ANGELES Kony Ealy Jets Jersey , Feb. 22 (Xinhua) -- As Chinese people at home and abroad celebrate the Spring Festival, or the Lunar New Year, more and more young Americans become fascinated with the centuries-old Peking Opera, a quintessence of the Chinese culture.
Alex Cline, who adopted a Chinese girl 11 years ago, has been trying his best to let his daughter learn more about China and its ancient civilization.
Knowing that Sun Ping, a first-class Peking Opera actress in China, would give a lecture at UCLA after performing a famous episode -- ""The Forest of Wild Boars DeMario Davis Jets Jersey ,"" Cline came early with his daughter.
""She's already interested in it so she wants to come,"" he told Xinhua. ""She watched DVDs of the Peking Opera for a while. She has different episodes of DVDs of Peking Opera. She likes the performance, the costume, the music and everything about Peking Opera.""
In the view of Cline, his adopted daughter has an indivisible relationship with China.
""She has a potential to be closer to her culture, so she can go back to China and be awakened to more and more about her culture,"" he said.
During Spring Festival celebrations, overseas Chinese and those fancying the Chinese culture Morris Claiborne Jets Jersey , like the Cline family, enjoyed fascinating art performances of traditional Chinese culture.
More than 300 artists from nine art troupes, invited by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council, charmed the audiences of 13 countries this month on five continents with 36 performances, including the well-known Peking Opera.
The series of shows, under the theme of ""Cultures of China, Festival of Spring,"" have been staged since 2009 to share Chinese people's festive mood with other peoples every year.
""I do like the performance of Peking Opera. It's really interesting. I like the costumes -- they are very gorgeous -- together with the headdress and makeup. It's really dramatic Chandler Catanzaro Jets Jersey ,"" said Riley Ford, a senior student of Chapman University.
""It's nice to have a change to see a piece of history through Peking Opera,"" he added.
Karina Hubbard, a junior student of Chapman University, said she was also glad to enjoy Peking Opera at her university. ""I really like the performance. I think it's a good thing to expose Americans to it,"" she said.
Speaking of the content of Peking Opera, she said: ""It's a little bit difficult for me to understand the story, because I think a lot of the words don't translate like exactly the same but I got a pretty good idea.""
For Hubbard Kelvin Beachum Jets Jersey , the performance was really a ""feast for the eyes.""
""I personally like the fight scene and then I love the characters with beautiful costumes,"" she said.
""If I have another chance to see Peking Opera in Los Angeles, I'll probably take my family with me. My parents like plays and operas and that kind of things,"" she added.
Echoing Hubbard's view, Motaru Morita, a graduate student of Asian studies and technical theater in Chapman University, said that although Americans cannot fully understand the plots of Peking Opera, they will enjoy it for its splendid visual images.
""Among the younger people Jordan Jenkins Jets Jersey , I would think the Peking Opera will become more interesting for them, because it's the different culture and different costumes. I think that would be the main trigger,"" he said.

Freestyle Motocross (also known as FMX) is a variation on the sport of motocross in which motorcycle riders attempt to impress judges with jumps and stunts. The two main types of freestyle events are:
1. Big Air ArDarius Stewart Jets Jersey , in which each rider gets two jumps — usually covering more than 75ft — from a dirt-covered ramp. Each rider's highest single-jump score is compared; top score wins.
2. Freestyle Motocross, the older of the two disciplines. Riders perform two routines, lasting between 90 seconds and 14 minutes, on a course consisting of multiple jumps of varying lengths and angles that generally occupy one to two acres.
Riders for natural jumps and drop-offs to execute their tricks on. Speculation of the possibility began among freestyle motocross riders in 1998 with the Motocross film Children of a Metal God (1998) featuring riders attempting the trick into water off a modified ramp. Also it had been done many times on BMX bikes, and FMX riders were using tricks from BMX riders, such as when Travis Pastrana performed an Indian Air, originally from Mat Hoffman, a BMXer. Unbeknownst to most if not all freestyle motocross riders at the time Marcus Maye Jets Jersey , two men had already successfully backflipped their motorcycles.
In 1991, Jose Yanez became the first person to backflip a motocross bike, performed the world's first ramp-to-ramp motocross backflip on an 80 cc motorcycle in October, 1991 on an 8' tall box jump he built himself in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.
In 1993, Bob Kohl was the second person to perform the backflip on a motocross bike. In 2000, Carey Hart attempted the first ever backflip on a full size motocross bike off a modified dirt landing ramp at the Gravity Games 2000. Many people started to attempt it themselves, such as Travis Pastrana Jamal Adams Jets Jersey , who attempted the backflip off a Step Up jump at Summer X Games Freestyle. The trick was.
