The lunisolar Chinese calendar determines the date of Chinese New Year. In 2016, the Chinese New Year also known as spring festival is on Monday, February 8th. And from that day seven days of celebration starts. On the Chinese New Year’s Eve a “Fan Dance” will be performed. In China, fans are viewed as good luck charms and expressions of generosity. A ballet group of 49 American and Chinese dancers will perform this dance at CCTV’s 2016 Spring Festival Gala.
