Tj’s Lion Dance video shoot during Chinese New Year
The lion dance (舞狮 wǔshī) is often mistakenly referred to as dragon dance. An easy way to tell the difference is that a lion is normally operated by two dancers, while a dragon needs many people.
Also, in a lion dance, the performers’ faces are only seen occasionally, since they are inside the lion. In a dragon dance, the performers’ faces can be easily seen since the dragon is held on poles.
Basic Chinese lion dance fundamental movements can be found in most Chinese martial arts.
