Students Enjoy Lion Dance

Feb 20, 2015

新年快乐 (Xin Nian Kuai Le)

Students at St. John’s School prepared their red envelopes in anticipation of the traditional lion dance this morning.
The lion dance is performed on joyous festivals and big occasions, such as the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year).
The performers imitate a lion’s movements in a lion costume, accompanied by the music of beating drums and gong instruments. It is believed that the lion is an auspicious animal that brings good luck. Therefore, a lion dance is performed to pray for good luck during the Spring Festival or other celebrations.
Happy Chinese New Year!
