World T’ai Chi & Qigong Day — Patchogue (April 25, 2009): For the first time in the history of the event in the village, the opening remarks and the formal remarks at the break were presented in two languages. As Laoshi Laurince McElroy (C)  spoke, he was flanked by two interpreters. Water Tiger School student Patricia Hsieh (L) and community member – and son of a Water Tiger public class student – Jayson Siegel (R), served to make the event bilingual.

World T’ai Chi & Qigong Day — Patchogue (April 25, 2009): For the third year, the facilitators on hand at 10A came together for a group demonstration during the break. As it has for the past two years, the demo successfully captured the separate unison, the varied similarity, the mixed harmony that are the arts of T'ai Chi and Qigong. Playing different aspects from their lineages (L to R) are Spencer Gee, Spencer Gee Wellness Corporation of Old Westbury; Mike Dalia, associate of Nancy Fiano; Sharon Infante, Music, Movement and More of Mt. Sinai; Judith Budd-Walsh, Harmonious Movement of Hauppauge; and Nancy Fiano, Dojo of the Dancing Dragon of Lindenhurst. Laoshi McElroy, Water Tiger School of Patchogue, is not pictured.
