An Insider on our Three-Time Airband Champions

Known at LJHS primarily for their incredible winning performances at Airband for the past three competitions, Asian Culture Club has had a major influence on our campus. The club had been around for four years prior to the 2022-2023 school year and is run by senior Margaret Fan this year.

Meetings are held in Room 901 every other Friday during lunch, at which a variety of topics regarding issues within the Asian community are analyzed. As Margaret Fan explained in early January, “we’ve had two meetings that were discussion-based; one was a discussion about Asian media portrayal & Asian media in general, and our other discussion was identity-based, where it was formatted as a jubilee spectrum video.” They’ve also recently started practicing for this year’s Airband competition, and members–old and new–are immensely excited.

Sophomore Solaine Bardin, a new member of the Asian Culture Club this year, expresses, “ACC is collaborating with some other clubs to put in an amazing performance this year. We are so excited and hyped for this year’s Airband.” As students navigate their way through the second semester, they can be sure to anticipate another iconic performance.


But it’s not just at Airband, where Asian Culture Club is making an impact. As they’ve done in past years, ACC held a movie night fundraiser on December 16th, where the club did a showing of “Princess Mononoke” and sold snacks and boba. They’ve fundraised for organizations, including Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ), to raise awareness of problems the Asian community is faced with. 

Clearly, Asian Culture Club is more than just a stellar group of dancers. We look forward to seeing all the other amazing things this club will accomplish in the future!
