Our Chinese Lions are colourful and always smiling. Their foot work is agile , mimicking the movements of a cat. The music is complicated, allowing the lion to express itself with many different types of expressions.
Extremely popular for Chinese Festivals as well as Asian themed events.
Chinese New Year Celebrations
The lion expresses joy and happiness and is used to summon luck and good fortune. During the Chinese New Year, lion dancer troupes from the Chinese martial art schools visit the houses and shops of the Chinese community to perform the traditional custom of “cai qing”, which literally means “plucking the greens”.
As the lion moves from place to place, he looks for some green vegetables such as lettuce which are hung above the doors of houses or businesses. Hidden in the leaves is a red packet of money. The lion eats the lettuce and and then scatters the lettuce leaves to symbolize a fresh start for the new year and the spreading of good luck.
The Red envelope offering is a reward for the lion for chasing away the evil spirits.
