The Dragon Dance is one of the most anticipated events of the traditional Lunar New Year celebrations. While it is not to be confused with the Lion Dance, the Dragon Dance is also performed on auspicious occasions and wards off evil spirits and welcomes good fortune.
Dragons are legendary animals, but they are important to Chinese people who think of dragons as helpful, friendly creatures. They are linked to good luck, long life and wisdom. They are nothing like the fierce, fire-breathing Western dragons that carry off princesses and eat people.
Our Chinese dragon dance workshop links perfectly to Chinese New Year, Cultural Weeks, International Days and Arts Week.
Up to 8 sessions
During a typical day-long workshop, Primary Workshops for Schools can deliver 6 sessions, stretching to 8 if necessary and each session can include up to 30 children and the day can be concluded with an end of day performance from the children.
