A minimum of nine energetic performers manipulate a fierce looking dragon, making it soar and dive in sweeping, wave-like patterns. Scaring away evil spirits and bringing good luck to all who are captivated by its intricate movements.
Highly popular and enormous fun, the dragon dance is often performed before a dragon boat race begins to bring strength and speed to all those on board.
The great skill in this ancient dance lies in truly effective teamwork. Each dancer must perform their own acrobatic manoeuvres whilst still working closely with the rest of the team as they bring the mighty dragon alive by creating graceful movements highlighting its sinuous beauty and leaving no doubt about its awesome, fiery power.
These beautiful, mythical beasts can be up to 35 metres in length, weaving and slithering their colourful way amongst their audiences, who gasp with fear and delight in equal measure.
Lion dancing is not only an integral part of Chinese New Year celebrations, where it is often performed in temples, restaurants, businesses and at cultural festivals, but is also a popular way to entice good luck to visit house warmings, weddings and birthdays.
Two skilled performers mimic the movements of a magnificent, brightly coloured lion, shaking its mighty head to show its huge teeth and flashing eyes. A highly agile performance, the lion energetically chases away bad spirits, allowing prosperity and good fortune to flow in.
The lion dance is accompanied by a team of talented musicians playing traditional instruments such as drums, cymbals and gongs to create a captivating atmosphere of light and sound as the lion performs.
There’s a lot of fancy footwork involved in performing the intricate lion dance. The two performers – one operating the head and one operating the tail – are strong and agile. Putting on an impressive acrobatic display to show not only the lion’s playful side, but its majestic power and strength.
