Primary Workshops for Schools

Chinese Dragon
Dance Workshops

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.
