Korean dancers brighten nursing homes

First slide

Maria Kim began performing traditional Korean dances as a girl, but when she moved to the United States, there were fewer opportunities to dance.  Fortunately, three years ago, she and more than a dozen parishioners of St. Paul Chung Korean Catholic Church in Fairfax formed a dance troupe. They perform in colorful Korean costumes at different events and festivals around the area, and at least monthly at an assisted living facility.

Kim loves to see how much the elderly residents enjoy their performances. They practice hard to ensure the act is just right for them. “The grandparents really, really like it, so we keep going. I'm very happy,” she said.
