Lion Dance

Lion dances are the most spectacular dances performed at CNY
the lion is also an important Chinese totem
the symbol of power, majesty and courage
There usually are two performers who play the lion
One, handling the lion's head
leads the dance and shows the lion's emotions
The other plays the body and the tail
They hide themselves under a cloth hide attached with the head
A good performance is believed to bring luck and happiness
Drums, cymbals and gongs are parts of the Dragon Dance
The drummer acts as conductor
and sets the rhythm for other instrument players to follow
