All about Lion Dance

Postby concern2 » Fri Feb 07, 2014 6:55 pm

Recently someone posted a new thread on where to find good Lion Dance Troupe in Singapore. Now, I can't find the link, so I've started another one, cos DH is a Lion Dance fan.

He has this good lobang to share, and this troupe is based in Singapore.

They have very good foundation in Kungfu, and are more stealthy and skillful than many other troupes I've seen.

At 8:24, you can see a stout-looking man leading. You anticipate how he is going to embark on the benches. Then, he makes a turn to 'bite its tail', and suddenly the thinner man on the tail is leading.

You may be wondering why the 'Lions' in Lion Dance don't really look like the real lions. Actually, it is the animal called 年 (nian).
