The Taoist Tai Chi Society of Spain has been celebrating its 30th anniversary with various events and demonstrations throughout the year that have served as a prelude to the many celebrations which took place in Madrid the weekend of October 27 & 28, 2012.
On Saturday a celebratory banquet was held which was attended by 200 members and guests.
But the most prominent event was the Taoist Tai Chi demo which was held in the Puerta del Sol on Friday afternoon. More than 100 members gathered together to practice tai chi and dance with the dragon. The most exciting moment was when the dragon burst into the crowded square. Everyone in the square turned around to watch the dragon as it danced, twirled and darted around the square. After the demo everybody wanted to have their photo taken with the dragon.
All who had been practicing in Orangeville this summer had been looking forward to this moment but worried about how it would turn out. The result was so good that it’s impossible to describe our emotions. The dragon legs were so full of energy that they didn’t ask for replacements!
Everyone returned to the Southern European Center very happy with the results and grateful to Master Moy for his teachings. The dragon is alive and well in the Southern European Center in Madrid.
