UD NSLIY Highlights: Warriors of Lion Dance

Lion Dance is a traditional folk dance in Chinese culture. Often performed on holidays, it adds festivity and joyfulness to cultural events. In partnership with Lion Dance Club of Xiamen University, on July 24 UD NSLIY organized a special workshop for the students to learn how to dance. Curious yet enthusiastic about this important aspect of Chinese folk performing arts, all the students fully engaged in the one-hour workshop, learning how to jump gracefully and keep a rhythmic movement. Difficult though Lion Dance is, our students proved to be quick learners and were able to perform some basic dance patterns, winning applaud from the audience.
