is a traditional folk dance used to bring good luck and good fortune.
Loud music, fireworks along with two people inside a lion costume
are used to scare away the evil spirits. Even today Lion Dancing
is more popular than ever. Lion dancers today show their skills
by performing exciting and sometimes dangerous routines, and by
making the lion appear alive.
Oceans Apart bring together the traditional chinese martial arts
with traditional Lion Dancing. We regularly perform Lion Dances
at public events and business openings. We also wok with children,
teaching them about the cultural significance of Lion Dancing, as
well as teaching them some of the sequences involved, tey will also
get the opportunity to learn the drum, gong, and cymbals which go
hand in hand with the lion dancing performance.
So as you can
see by enrolling into Ocean's Apart you don't just get to learn
martial arts but also the chance to perform at some major demonstrations
across the UK.
