Our fantabulous dragon runners.  2013

Our fantabulous dragon runners.  2013

    The Chinese Performing Arts Program (CPAP) is an extracurricular program at West Portal Elementary School (WPE) located in San Francisco, California.  WPE is a member of the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUCD).  CPAP is sponsored by the non-profit parent volunteer organization, the West Portal Parents Club.

  Our mission is to:

    •    provide a positive, exciting learning environment

    •    expose our community to the Chinese Performing Arts

    •    develop a student program that teaches our kids to be leaders and mentors 

    •    share  our story, through partnerships and performances

    •    encourage our kids to be a part of something bigger than themselves


       Our pinnacle activity is to bring our 200 students and alumnae to the San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade to perform and march for the world to enjoy.  However, our season starts in the late summer where we perform at the Kaiser Dragon Boat races on Treasure Island.  Other highlights are performances for the Golden State Warriors, Macy’s, and our San Francisco Giants.
