11반갑습니다. 저희 월드아리랑 전통예술원 홈페이지를 방문해 주셔서 감사합니다. 한국전통문화는 오천년이란 오랜 역사속에 잦은 외세 침략으로 우리 국민의 한 많은 세월을 그려낸 우리만의 다양한 전통 문화가 있습니다. 최근 우리 한국문화에 대한 세계관심에 힘입어 한국 전통문화 예술의 우수성을 동포 사회는 물론 미 주류 사회에 교육하고 전파하고자 의도 하고 있습니다. 또한 월드아리랑 전통예술원은 다양한 한국전통문화 체험과 공연등을 통해 폭 넓은 타 문화와의 통합이라는 징검다리 역할을 하고자 합니다. 더 많은 사람들이 우리 재단이 제공하는 한국문화체험의 기회를 가질수 있도록 더욱 고민 하겠습니다. 월드아리랑 전통예술원 대표

World Arirang Artist Center, WAAC, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that focuses on promoting Korean traditional culture to current and future generations through performing song, dance, and instruments. WAAC was founded by Mimi Shin, the CEO and main performer. She has been singing and dancing Korean traditional culture for over 40 years and is a well known performer in Korea. Her passion is unparalleled, and she wishes to share it with the world. Although WAAC was officially established in 2016, we have provided over 100 performances to various charitable events since 2012. We have performed for the Crow Collection of Asian Art, DFW Airport, DFW Dragon Boat Festival, taught Korean traditional song and dance to the Korean Senior Citizen Association of Dallas, and several others. For the future, WAAC is planning events every year in Texas to showcase Korean traditional culture, and will be performaning at several different festivals throughout the year. There will be classes for those who would like to learn song, dance, and instruments. World Arirang Artist Center hopes to provide an educational source for all those who are interested in Korean traditional culture, and promote awareness to those who are unaware. We hope to achieve our mission of teaching our culture to the next generation. In order to reach our goals, we are accepting donations.

Thank you for all your support,

Mimi Shin
