Celebrate Lunar New Year with a Lion Dance Performance
About Lion Dance
Lion dances are traditionally performed to bring good luck for the New Year. Lion Dance is an important part of Southern Style Kung Fu training and part of China’s cultural heritage. The lion uses two people in its head and tail to bring it to life, showing emotions such as fright, anger, grace and joy in a time honored ritual that moves in rhythm to the music of a drum, gong and cymbals.
