Celebrate Lunar New Year with a Lion Dance Performance

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. 

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS

The Jow Ga Shaolin Institute 周家少林堂 ( jau ga shàolín táng ) is a traditional Chinese martial arts school located in Herndon, VA. They provide training in Tai Chi and Kung Fu. Their Demo team performs not only martial arts, but also Lion Dance and Dragon Dance.
