KCC LAUNCHES THREE FACE-TO-FACE CULTURAL CLASSES TO THE PUBLIC STARTING JULY 20
The fun never stops here in Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines as the center introduces its fresh and new lineup for its Cultural Classes for July 20!
Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines introduces its Cooking Class, Korean Traditional Dance Class and Taekwondo Class that will all be held in its new building. The classes were selected due to their popular demand from both the center’s visitors as well as from the interest of the general public.
The Cooking Class will be taught by KCC’s Teacher Lily Min who has also handled the previous cooking classes. The class will be held in KCC’s new Cooking Classroom and will teach 16 students per class. The curriculum will touch upon different Korean food cooking techniques as well as the history and social culture of Korea through food. Interested participants can select the menu for 8 weeks they’d like to join upon registration.
KCC’s Teacher Kim Hyo Jun, who is the President of Korea Taekwondo Association in the Philippines, will handle the Taekwondo Class. The class will be held in KCC’s new K-Studio and will teach 30 students in total. There will be 2 sessions of Taekwondo classes on Saturday and 30 students will have a level test on the first day to divide the group into 2 sessions. It will touch upon the deeply rooted discipline and martial arts centered in Korean culture. It also includes the strengthening of the mind and the body and learning the etiquette associated with it.
Finally, the Korean Traditional Class will be taught by KCC’s Teacher Jo Jang Eun who has handled the previous traditional dance classes. The class will be held in KCC’s new K-Studio, the same as the Taekwondo class, and will teach 15 students in total on Saturday. There will be one session a week and its curriculum will touch upon the history and social culture of Korea through its music and dance, particularly Buchaechum or “Fan Dance” which drew influences from traditional Korean folk dances.
All Cultural Classes will be held from July 20, 2022 to September 17, 2022. The students will be selected from a first apply, first slot basis via forms that will be released on KCC’s official FACEBOOK accounts on July 13 at 10 AM. No fees will be paid by any student for the whole duration of the class, and materials needed for the classes such as ingredients, uniforms and gears are also provided for by the center.
