Hua Mulan

Signed Anya up for the Chinese theatre holiday camp by Apple Pie Language again and this time they performed Hua Mulan. She acted as Hua Mulan’s sister (I didn’t know Hua Mulan had a sister) and had a speaking role. I thought she did a really good job memorising her lines, the poem and her dance steps. While I could see that she enjoyed the kungfu actions and dancing, she wasn’t as enthusiastic about the programme this time so I think I may not sign her up for the one in December. She liked being able to put on make-up though!
