Trinidad born – Dai Ailian: Mother of Chinese Dance – video

  • Trinidadian Madame Dai Ailian, is one of Trinidad’s greatest icons. She co-founded the National Ballet of China and the Beijing Dance Academy.
    This videois an informative and inspiring vignette of Dai Ailian – who is from Trinidad, migrated to London and then China where she became the Mother of Chinese Dance.
    We must pay homage to her as one of a number of Trinis of Chinese descent that returned to China and made a name for themselves.
    What is little known is that Dai spoke Mandarin with a Trini accent. Her stay in London was not long enough to change her accent and so she learnt Chinese as a Trini speaker.
    Thanks Janine Fung for this video. Enjoy everyone.    Continue reading

And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth
Why shouldn’t the plural of booth be called beeth?   Continue reading
