WASHINGTON—The Divine Performing Arts (DPA) Chinese New Year Spectacular continued to captivate audiences at the Kennedy Center Opera House on Thursday evening Feb. 12.

"It was probably the best thing I've seen ever. It was very good," said student Lily Martin.

When asked how so? She replied, "Just how they moved. They put so much emotion in it, and you could just see in their dancing how much they loved it. And it was beautiful."

Her favorite part of the show was the "flower dance," which is called The Udumbara's Bloom. The legendary Udumbara flowers of Buddhist lore blossoms only once every three thousand years, according to the program guide. Its unfolding is said to herald the coming of a great sage or enlightened being.

"Very graceful. The costumes were amazing in that one," she said. "I like the costumes that had the very soft, pastel colors and they flowed a lot with their movements and it added to their movements."
