What is the Lion Dance?
The lion dance is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture and other Asian countries in which performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume to bring good luck and fortune. The lion dance was originally performed by kung fu schools as a way to show their strength. The lion dance is usually performed during the Chinese New Year and other Chinese traditional, cultural, and religious festivals. The Chinese lion dance has close relations to Kung fu. the dancers are usually martial art members of the local kung fu club or school. They practice in their club, train hard to master the skill as one of the disciplines of the martial art. In general, it is seen that if a school has a capable troupe with many ‘lions’, it demonstrates the success of the school.
