Chinese Lion & Dragon Dance Workshops

Chinese Lion & Dragon Dance Workshops

What better way to celebrate Chinese New Year than choosing a Chinese Lion Dance Workshop or a Dragon Dance Workshop. You can also use it to enhance your cultural themed weeks.

Lion Dance Workshop

Your children will be awed by the spectacle that our highly skilled dancers will bring to your school beginning with a colourful and interactive assembly.

The Lion Dance is an important form of traditional dance in Chinese culture and incorporates many of the essential movements found in Kung Fu. The Chinese Lion Dance Workshop will show children some of the basic steps using a smaller version of the costume and the history and tradition behind the dance will also be explored.

Children will learn how to mimic the lion’s movements whilst gaining the opportunity to appreciate and experience some of the most historically fascinating areas of the world.

Dragon Dance Workshop

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 of course 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

The following workshops are also especially suitable for covering the Chinese New Year, or your cultural weeks.

Calligraphy literally means “beautiful writing". Calligraphy can be both a delight to the eye and an inspiration to the spirit. It is often more highly prized than other art forms.

Origami is creative, fun and relaxing, requiring nothing more than a piece of paper to enable you to produce anything from a jumping frog to a flapping bird.

A typical Chinese Lion Dance Workshop consists of six sessions throughout the day, which culminate in an engaging performance at the end allowing children to demonstrate the exciting new skills they have learnt.
