The Lion Dancing tradition dates back thousands of years. According to legend, a Chinese Emperor had a dream in which he was attacked by demons and saved by a lion. From that dream comes lion dancing. Traditional lion dancers, accompanied by symbols and a drum, dance to scare away demons.
In class, we train in lion dancing to prepare for the San Francisco Chinese New Years Parade as well as other events.
