Chinese New Year must have come early this year because our friends from Sacred Mountain Fighting and Healing Arts will be doing an in-store traditional “Lion Dance for us!
What is a Traditional Lion Dance?
Great question, here’s what to expect:
Each lion dance varies according to the occasion and situation, but each dance includes:
Traditional Bow – used to open and close a lion dance, it shows humility and brings luck.
Respect to Guests of Honor – the lion shows respect and humility through bows throughout the dance to honored guests
High and Low Walk – showing pride and curiosity in our surroundings, and illustrating attentiveness and curiosity
Play – fun! The lion acts youthful and playful, and interacts with the crowd and surroundings
Choy Cheng “Eating the Greens” – the finale, the lion will pick up and eat a head of lettuce, retrieving a red envelope of money inside, then spits out the remaining green, spreading good fortune to the audience
This event is entirely free and will take place Saturday, September 17th starting at 1pm. Don’t miss out on all the luck bringing and lion dancing madness, we’ll see you Saturday!
