Sifu Young will lead the audience from dance to dance throughout the parks with the Southern Chinese “Fut Shan” Lion Dance. Traditionally, the lion dance is performed at festivals, Chinese New Year, business openings and weddings. It is a colourful, dynamic cultural tradition that is meant to bestow luck and fortune on all those in attendance. The dancers mimic mythical lion behaviours and emotions through physicality, manipulation of the facial expression of the lion and traditional music. They capture ferocity, curiosity, playfulness and fear in the telling of short stories of the lion’s adventures.
