The Edison Ballroom
(240 West 47th Street New York, NY 10036)
The Korean Performing Arts Center proudly presents the Korean Cultural Experience event on Saturday, Feb 23, 2013 at Edison Ballroom in NYC. The event celebrates Jeongwol Daeboreum, which refers to the fifteenth day of the lunar calendar and is the first full moon of the lunar year. There are many traditions and customs associated with Jeongwol Daeboreum in Korea. Some of these traditional performances include "Ganggangsullae" and “Jishin Balpggi” or “Stepping on the Spirits of the Earth.” Some of the traditions the audience will participate in are the cracking of the Bureom nut, Yut Nori, a traditional board game, and the making of a wish for the New Year. Through this celebration, we hope to drive out negative energy, and bless them with good fortune, hope, peace, and prosperity in the New Year.
General Admission tickets cost $10, and Senior & Student tickets cost $5. For more information, please contact the Korean Performing Arts Center directly by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 212-921-9344.
